Summary0020726: Basic support for Android

As discussed in the mailling list and in private. My prefered method is having a separate target because this allows a more smooth development of structural libraries which need to differentiate between arm-linux and Android.

The latest Android breakage was introduced here:

Previously there was also this one:

I'd also recommend the following:

* Don't change into a libc based RTL, keep using syscalls, like Google recommended. Besides being recommended by Google this is also less work.
* argc=argv=nil is good enough for Android. We don't necessarely need those in Android, although if you find a reliable way to get them it's also fine for me.
TagsNo tags attached.

Out of curiosity: Where did Google recommend to use syscalls?

Have a look at the new branch which implements compiler level arm/android support.

In case anyone is reading this: what's the status of the "targetandroid" branch, please? Is it ready for prime time yet?

The only available doc on targeting Android with FPC is

Unlike the unofficial 2.5.1 branch this is the officially supported version that should somewhen in the future be merged to trunk. If you want to test it you need to specify "arm" as CPU and "android" as OS when building the compiler and/or programs.

I cannot build official ' target android branch ' (2.7.1 based). Sad. :(
I already test with any possible ways but always failed.

You should ask on the mailing list (e.g. fpc-devel) if you have troubles.
