Excellent news, even if it would be hard to even compile it ;)

Version 2.2 is available there, wasn't that the latest official version?

There is even a nice bonus, you can track changes between each version (1.60, 2.0, 2.1, 2.2).

But I agree, the fact it is made in Pascal and even a custom Pascal compiler is needed makes this very challenging to get it working.

Wow! This is awesome. This is a great application.
Ain't no space like PeP-space.

Has anyone else tried the build yet ?

It's been a while since I used PurePascal.

I haven't tried the build. I know the custom compiler is still out there, but not sure if we can get a patch released. I hope so.

Also, 2.30 is the last beta and has not been released yet, but hopefully that is coming soon if Thomas will agree to it. Thankfully it has been preserved.

I'm already struggling with compiling ObjectGEM (also available in Thomas' organization)

Why not use the "embedded" one? https://github.com/thmuch/texel/tree/master/ObjectGEM

Hi !

I managed to successfully build and run Texel from the sources using PurePascal 1.1. I’m in touch with Thomas who expects to update GitHub accordingly.

Additional info on how to get there :
- Current Texel code in GitHub compiles and builds fine using PurePascal 1.1. 1) Copy all files from the ObjectGEM folder into the Texel folder. 2) Open file TEXEL.PAS in PurePascal 1.1. 3) Configure compiler option to generate program binary 4) Make all. You’ll get TEXEL.PRG.
- In order to run the Texel application, you have to register it. 1) Rename TEXEL.PRG into TEXEL.APP and move it into the keygen folder. 2) Add the line {$X+} to REGISTER.PAS (needed by PP to accept function calls not handling the result) 3) Run REGISTER.PAS. Output message message should say that registration was successful.
- Get an installation folder of Texel 2.2 with all related resources and data files. You need those data files for Texel to run (currently missing from GitHub). Replace the vanilla TEXEL.APP with the one you built. Run.
- PurePascal 1.1 and Texel 2.2 installs are available here : viewtopic.php?t=32323

Have fun !!
