The compiler needs at least one of the following processors:
- An Intel 80386 or higher processor. A coprocessor is not required, although it will
slow down your program’s performance if you do floating point calculations without a
coprocessor, since emulation will be used.
- An AMD64 or EMT64 processor.
- A PowerPC processor. (32 or 64 bit)
- A SPARC processor
- An ARM processor (32 or 64 bit).
- Older FPC versions exist for the motorola 68000 processor, but these are no longer
Memory and disk requirements:
The memory and disk requirements vary from platform to platform. One should count in the order
of 100 megabytes for a basic installation; 2 Gigabytes should be counted if you want to recompile
the compiler and all basic packages.
