About debugging... I live under Linux 2.2.38 and use RHGDB to
debug FPC (RHIDE have to many bugs and can not be used in real life).
RHGDB do not work very nice›too, but it is useable (I use patch for
gdbpas to rebuild RHGDB).

PS: It is possible to find a remote programming work? Currently I
work in Moscow as street cleaner for $10 per week. It is possible
to find here a work as system administrator or programmer for
100$ per week, but it is not easy to find a work in Linux
or TurboVision proramming.

And it would be very nice if I can found some work to port
DOS TV C++ programs to Linux (or Windows, or OS/2). Or to write
a new Linux text mode programs in TV style.

This work can help me to release more useable RHGDB. May be
I write to SuSE or RedHat and try ask about this work. Or
try to get a work in ASP Linux team.

PPS: About HEAP manager in FPC...
I think I found a solution how to speed up my version of heap.inc
This version do merging of free blocks only in GetMem
and have speed problems because it merge all blocks
(and small blocks too) before asking new block from OS.
Now I try to remove merging small blocks and would do
this only if a used by FPC memory is more
than a value of some FPC variable (which would be in Linux
by default equal to physical memory, this value can be taken
as size of /proc/kcore or be readed from /proc/meminfo).
