Overview

The BaseUnix unit was implemented by Marco Van de Voort. It contains basic unix functionality. It supersedes the Linux unit of version 1.0.X of the compiler, but does not implement all functionality of the linux unit.

People that have code which heavily uses the old Linux unit, must fetch this unit from the sources or older distributions and manually compile it. In 2.0.x and 2.2.x releases this unit was included as oldlinux, but starting with 2.4.0 this unit has been removed \ from the release distribution.

For porting FPC to new unix-like platforms, it should be sufficient to implement the functionality in this unit for the new platform.
