Got an idea for enhancing PureBasic? New command(s) you'd like to see?

Support of ARM CPU

Post by SkyManager »

Can PB run on ARM CPU, OS as Linux or Window?
If not, what is the plan (road map) of PB on this platform?

I shouldn't say it because it's way to early (no ETA, only very small programs works), but I'm actually working on it ! Now, back to code :)

Is this LLVM or are you composing ASM direct?

Good news.
What ARM cores are in the plans?
Will there be support for Cortex-M (microcontrollers STM32, etc.)?
Will it be a native application?

Well now, this makes sense. ARM works on Linux for ages, Windows also supports it solidly, and now Apple appears to be turning to it on desktops/laptops as well.

Go Fred!!!

Because more and more a device with an ARM processor.
On your smartphone, tablet, smart TV, which processor?
And there are devices Raspberry Pi and Banana Pi with ARM processor.
Intel x86-x64 processor is now only in PC.
