Please include the new powerpc64le target :=)

Hello,
I try to compile my software for as many target platforms and CPUs as possible.

One of my customers is actually running it on an IBM POWER8 system under Linux pp64le.

FPC / trunk supports this, but I couldn't compile it with fpcupdeluxe.

Could you officially include it in newpascal? Especially for cross-compiling.

You can get a ppc64le VM here (SSH only):

Power8 is a great platform, and we would like to support it in mORMot too, in the clause future.

About FpcDeluxe, please ask for support in https://github.com/newpascal/fpcupdeluxe

@TobiasCraft
Fpcupdeluxe should support powerpc64le target !
Just install FPC trunk and choose ppc64 and linux as targets.
Feedback welcome.

Thanks, I'll try it!

In the meantime I am compiling natively using a very nice POWER8 VM in the Minicloud:

You can have multiple VMs, both Little Endian and Big Endian at the same time.
