Lazarus for Cross-Platform Development
This article gives a brief overview of how Lazarus and FPC make cross-platform development easy with a fast native compiler. Developers have the choice to optimize as far as they want, even down to assembly level or by accessing system libraries directly. The visual editors allow you to design dialogs and database applications quickly. The package system greatly simplifies the structuring of large projects and porting and distributing code to other platforms. The IDE cross-editing features allow developers to work under Linux and code for another target.
