| At some point in time I have to wonder when people will go to use

| They are
Delphi and turbo pascal compliant
How is free pascal an
improvement over gpc in terms of graphics output?
both the programmer's guide and the language reference guide for
"graphics." I found nothing.

in the states pascal usage has dropped
| significantly since the the
infestation of java...
Perhaps your intent was to post in the
"Quo vadis GPC" thread?
I plea for discussions of GPC that
have nothing to do with GRX be taken to that thread.

| I would like to use Pascal to generate images in high resolution and
| least 24 bit color depth. There are links to a GRX library,
| 2d graphics, but the user manual there was
last updated in 2007, which
| suggests they are further behind than
GPC. I don't find any grx library
| my Debian (Lenny) list
of available packages, using the search feature
| within aptitude.
Apparently I would have to compile GRX and then somehow
| get it to
work with Pascal. As a barely capable programmer, I do not
| forward to this with glee. (BTW I am not asking for help, just making
| point.) In all the discussion about the future of GPC, I am a
| surprised that no one seems to talk about graphics output. Did
| something? I do that a lot.
| How about
| output directly in Pascal? Is there much
interest in this? It seems to
| that it would make Pascal
more attractive. It would be "like POVray
| but even more
powerful" as any general purpose programming language
naturally would be. Thanks for your time.
