[fpc-devel] Interface scope incompatibility with Delphi

Rather than filling up the list with why this particular issue
(something I've never done, and don't care about) behaves differently
than Delphi, could someone instead focus on how to perform the needed
task(s) with FPC?

FPC doesn't work the way Delphi does.  Take that as a given.  Then
figure out how FPC can do the same task.  If it is an easy compiler
fix, fine, do that.  If it isn't, don't gripe about it, instead figure
out another way to do the job with what you have available.  Wrap the
code, IFDEF it, whatever it takes, get the job done, and move on.
Pretty?  Not particularly.  Elegant?  Certainly not.  But it is far
more productive than spending a week arguing back and forth on the
mailing list.

Arguing about why FPC and Delphi are different, rather than
implementing solutions within the framework of what is available, is a
waste of everyone's time, including those of us who just want to read
our mail.
