Re: GP runs on iOS

Hi Charles,
here are a few:
- turn the iSh Disable Screen Dimming Setting on 
- install git (apt get git)
- install gcc
- clone the GP Git Project one the iSh Command line
- ./Configure
- make install
- let the compiler run for about 48 hours (don't forget to let the iPad’s power cord plugged in overnight) 
- you might also want to enable iCloud access from iSh in case you’d like to share code with your MacOS version of GP
Best regards,

PS this is off-topic, but I have also managed to install the following compilers/interpreters on iSh:

- EclipseClp (constraint-programming Prolog). Cf.
- TXR (Common Lisp).
- D Compiler (C++-like language).
- Mercury. (Prolog)
- Bracmat (Common Lisp derivative).

That's fantastic, Philippe! Do you have any tips for others who might like to try compiling for the iPad?

Good morning,
For those that might be interested, I have managed to compile GP in the iSH VM on iOS on my IPad Air 3. It took 48 hours.
Best regards,
