The windows unit is simply a pascal binding for the Windows API. The C
calls are all valid. So you can simply search the WINAPI functions for the
parts that you need and call them from your application as described in
the MSDN.

For a lot of Linux the same true. You can check the man page for the C
function and call it as described in the man page.
