There is much documentation spread over many servers.

The scenario occures when someone starts freepascal as I already documented in 
my first E-Mail.

When someone wants to compile a TurboPascal or Delphi program with freepascal.
Then he already knows that result is a function result, but freepascal gives 
an error about this.

Of course now you can say he has to read the documentation, but this you can 
say nearly to every question for which a solution is documented in the docs.

As I read from your statement your opinion is that my suggestion is completely 
needless. I know it now, but for the beginners it will be a help to not get 
demotivated with reading all the docs.
