Version 1.4 of the paxCompiler has been released.


- Support of OOP:
    a) you can create script-defined classes that inherit host-defined
    b) it is possible to create script-defined event handlers for
host-defined events and vice versa.
    c) virtual and abstract methods are allowed.
- Support of stdcall, cdecl, pascal, register calling conventions.
- Increased speed of compilation.

paxCompiler is an embeddable compiler of Pascal programming language.
The key features of the paxCompiler are:

- The compiler generates machine code for Intel processor.
- It is possible to use the compiler as a scripting engine. You can
embed the compiler into host application, register host-defined types,
routines, variables and constants for the engine, read/write
script-defined variables, call script-defined functions from host
application, save/load compiled
scripts to/from a stream.
- The compiler was initially written in Borland Delphi as a set of
Delphi components that allows you to embed the paxCompiler into Delphi,
Kylix or Borland C++ Builder application. You can customize and extend
the application without having to recompile it.
- Source code of paxCompiler is compatible with Free Pascal 2.0.
- paxCompiler, implemented as paxcompilerlib.dll, can be used for
scripting Microsoft Visual C++ applications.
- The compiler implements a subset of Object Pascal language that
supports such concepts as namespaces, classes, records, arrays,
enumerations, overloaded routines, nested routines, default parameters,
exception handling, units.
- You can import host-defined class types and class-reference types.
- The roadmap of the compiler includes: Basic and C compilers,
cross-language programming, built-in assembler, debugger.
