        Hello, world!

        This is an announcement of a new library for GNU Pascal:


        It is only a pre-alpha release (version 0.01), but it should
        give you

          - some Borland-like tools such as Assign, FillChar, ParamStr,
            GetEnv, Random,
          - direct keyboard access via KeyPressed and ReadKey function,
          - direct screen access with colors.

        You need turbo-1.1-gpc-2.6.3 (i.e. the first bug fix for the 
        GPC with Borland extensions, released together with BO5 on
        19. December 1995) to compile BO5.

        BO5 is intended to run on *all* platforms on which GPC runs.
        If not, or if you have some other comment/suggestion/bug report,
        please write to

        If your comment is of general interest for all GPC users, you
        should better write to the gpc-list

        I have uploaded BO5 to and to
        In Augsburg, it can already be downloaded from


        For more information, please read the files README.BO5 and

        Merry Christmas and a happy New Year!
