Pow!/32 (for Windows 95, 98 and Windows NT)
The latest Release of Pow!/32 is called Pow!/32 3.0b and consists
following four files:
them to a temporary directory and execute the first file to install Pow!. This
package includes the compiler interface for Oberon-2 and Java and the
Oberon-2 compiler itself. If you want to use Pow! for Java programming you
need the free Java Development Kit from Sun. It can be downloaded from http://java.sun.com.
- If you want to use Pow! for C++ programming you have to download a
separate package. Just download the file Pow32_cpp.zip (C++ compiler
interface and examples) and MingW32.zip (compiler) to a temporary directory.
Read the file Install.doc in the first file to know how to install this
addon. In future releases this package will become part of Pow!.
- For Windows 95 users: The C++ compiler interface included in
Pow32_cpp.zip didn't work correctly under Windows 95. Therefore you can
download a corrected version of the compiler interface. Just replace the
file GNU C++.cll with this one.
Please rename the downloaded file to "GNU C++.cll" if necessary.
- Previous releases:
- Pow!/32 3.0a: Pow32_30a.exe, Pow32_30a.w02, Pow32_30a.w03, Pow32_30a.w04
- A fixpack for Pow! 3.0a/32 has been released. It includes a new version
of the file link32.dll, which replaces the file with the same name in the
Pow! directory. It should cure a problem which arises when the size of
all local variables in a procedure is larger than about 8KB. (Download
- A further fixpack for Pow! 3.0a/32 is available. The type bound procedure
Next of the record type Scan in module Volume of the OPAL library didn't
return the next file. Instead it returned the same file as the procedure
First. If you have encountered this problem please download
the fixpack. Put the LIB files into the directory Pow!\Oberon-2\Opal
and the DLL file to the system directory of your windows directory.
Besides you can produce a general protection fault if you use the record
type Scan of the module Volume and if you link the OPAL library as DLL
to your program. We are working on this problem. Until we have found a
solution you should use the static version of the OPAL library. You use
the static version of the OPAL library if you replace the files opal32dll.lib
and opal32dllhelp.lib with the file opal32lib.lib in your project definition
- A further small bug was found within the Opal library. The function
Print.StartWithDialog couldn't be used. The linker said it couldn't find
the symbol __imp_Print_StartWithDialog. These should be solved by the following
fixpack. If you have encountered this problem, please
the fixpack. Decompress the zip file and copy the files to the directory
Pow!\Oberon-2\Opal or your System32 directory.
- All these fixes are included in Pow!/32 3.0b.
