Also, to make it clear: FPC cannot work around the requirement of  
having an Apple-issued certificate to run self-written programs on an  
iPhone/iPod Touch. So you have to sign up to Apple's iPhone Developer  
program ($99/year) to run FPC-compiled programs on the real hardware  
(just like for regular Xcode-compiled programs).

Without such a certificate, you can only run programs on the simulator  
(possibly unless you have a jailbroken iPhone/iPod Touch, but in that  
case you are on your own; I will not involve myself with jailbreaks,  
to avoid any potential legal troubles with the status of this FPC port).
