DCC64.EXE, the Delphi 64-bit Command Line Compiler
Go Up to Command-Line Utilities Index
DCC64.exe compiles Delphi applications that target the 64-bit Windows platform. DCC64 runs on the 32-bit Windows development platform, so using DCC64 is cross-platform application development, even if you are using a 64-bit Windows development system.
- Native integer types are 64-bit.
- Pointers are 64-bit.
- Dynamic arrays have 64-bit indexes.
- Floating-point operations can be performed in single or double precision. Extended precision floating-point operations are not supported.
- SHL/SHR behavior: 32-bit integers are shifted in 32-bit space, 64-bit integers are shifted in 64-bit space.
- Mixed Pascal/assembly code is not supported.

64-bit Inline Assembler
DCC64.EXE supports 64-bit assembly code, with some limitations. Routines must be written completely in Delphi or in assembler (no mixing is allowed).
Pseudo-ops are provided to manage the stack. These are described in the following table.
Use this pseudo-instruction when calling external functions. This pseudo-instruction maps the function parameters in accordance with the x64 calling convention. When used, a pseudo-variable,
Generates code to save and restore the non-volatile general purpose register in prologue and epilogue.
Has the same functionality as
Forcibly disables the generation of a stack frame as long as there are no local variables declared and the parameter count is less than 4. Use only for "leaf" functions.
