Altivec unit?

Eduardo Morras
Hello:
         Just ask if there is any ppcaltivec unit for freepascal,
like mmx. If not i'll may convert the c ones from gcc so i can use
the freevec lib under pascal.

And a related question, does compiler understand inline ppc asm?

TIA

PPC compiler doesn't yet supports Altivec at all. But it's on the
todo list. Any help is welcomed though. :)

Yes it does. But just like other parts of the compiler, also inline
assembler doesn't support Altivec yet.
 
Bye,
