Here is a brief progress report on HN5 development for the month of September 2020.

The aim is to get the Chart demo project running inside HN5 Creator IDE.

The development is being carried out on a Windows 7 x64 machine with regular testing of HN5 on Linux(Lubuntu).

The development language is Free Pascal which should ensure HN5 will be able to run on a variety of Operating Systems, both newer and older versions. The main targets being Windows, OS X and Linux.


RUNTIME ENGINE

Most of the keywords and functions needed by the Chart project are now implemented.
Those remaining are mostly concerned with the GUI such as canvas, color picker etc.


HELP SYSTEM

This now loads and correctly displays a test HAC help file.
It uses self-contained Free Pascal code to ensure that it will be both cross-platform and not need external helper apps.
