File type: FPK Archive
The A file extension is closely identified with the 32- or 64-bit FPK Pascal (Free Pascal) compiler application. The software supports various types of processors like PowerPC, Intel x86, Sparc, AMD64/x86 64, and Motorola 680x0.
The compiler associated with the A format file can also be deployed in a wide array of computing platforms such as FreeBSD, Linux, SunOS (Solaris), NetBSD, DOS, Classic Amiga, BeOS, QNX, Mac OS Classic, Mac OS X/Darwin, MorphOS, and 32-bit Microsoft Windows Operating Systems.
This compiles supports the excellent language syntax compatibility with the Turbo Pascal 7.0 (TP 7.0) including the Delphi development language. This compatibility extends to interfaces, widestrings, ansistrings, exceptions, rtti, and classes.
For Apple users, the application incorporates the Mac Pascal compatibility mode which also has a built-in support for global properties, operator overloading, and function overloading among others.
The generation of the A file extension along with runtime libraries and packages of the compiler are covered by modified Library GNU Public License in order to make the use of static libraries in the creation of programs.
