<< Sorry, for the previous message I didn't look for scanner file in CVS enough.
Now, I'm seeing this file exists.
And I've studied it I have to change 2 to 1 in:

tscannerfile.readtoken procedure 
and in
is_keyword function

And I've found InitScanner procedure which I supposed is the one that proccess 
such things
as "defined parametres", i.e. {$ifdef TP}. 
Am I right? Is this the last thing about InitScanner correct?

<< You're very lucky. I tried to debug it with IDE from 1.0.4 and it didn't work
(see http://www.freepascal.org/bugs/showrec.php3?ID=1515 ), and then I took the 
IDE from 1.0.5 and I overwrote it in my current 1.0.4 installation and I didn't 
work neither.

<< I think you haven't understood me, I don't find anything in this file

tokens as they were new ones. 

And I've been searching compinnr.inc in (http://www.freepascal.org/cgi-
bin/cvsweb/projects/lazarus/) and I haven't found it, although I must confess I 
haven't searched in all the folders. (Perhaps should I find it at 
http://lazarus.freepascal.org snapshot?)

Thanks for all
