Graphics Vision for the Free Pascal Compiler (FPC)
Graphics Vision (GV) is a pixel-oriented graphical re-implementation of
Borland's Turbo Vision (Pascal). It is available for DOS, DPMI and Windows.
It is currently being ported to the free 32-bit Free
Pascal compiler (Target: GO32 DOS Extender and GNU/Linux with
SVGALIB). The Free Pascal versions of GV are free software.

Download a development snapshot of GV/FPC of 14-Feb-1999 for the Free
Pascal Compiler, version 0.99.10, from here:
You should have a recent version of FPC installed. I use the version
provided in fpc-0.99.10-1.i386.rpm, so if you also use this version,
everything should work fine. Any later version should also work but
it is not tested and you never know.
Everything else is provided in the snapshot. (Sorry if you get
packages that you already have but I don't have time at the moment
to keep track of changing versions etc.)
There is also some documentation available (Postscript and sources),
mostly in German, and not very extensive anyway:

(Free for individual use, available

The original target of Graphics Vision is the Borland compilers for
DOS and DPMI. It has recently been ported to MS Windows, compiled with
Borland Pascal for Windows or Delphi 1.0. The Graphics Vision class
library and a powerful library of graphics functions (for DOS/DPMI)
are distributed together by MKM Software as `Graphics Vision &
Tools'. It is a commercial product but free for individual use. See
homepage for details.
