And you answered by next question before I could even ask it. :)  I was
looking for syntax help on that in the Kylix 3 help and couldn't find
anything - now I know why.

I looked at the 'ports' unit, and it doesn't use that syntax either. Only 3
standard classes are defined in the interface section. Either way, I can
honestly say I don't see myself ever using that syntax. :)  Thanks for the
info though.
