I have been using fpc since the beginning of the year, and it is  
great. Thank you very much for a great product.

I have a few problems/queries.

1) Much of what I do is involved with preparing formatted reports.  
These mostly use RTF and that side is working well. However, one has  
to be produced in postscript and that is where I run into problems.  
How do I persuade fpc to talk to the Fonts.p file in MetroWorks  
CodeWarrior (or alternatively how do I access routines such as  
TextSize and StringWidth)?

2) If I have all my units in a folder, how do I tell fpc to go look in  
that folder when I am compiling a main program in a different folder?

Thanks for any help you can give me.
