Also, one note to consider
It is know that some of OOP concepts can be implemented with procedural
language. For example, pseudo-encapsulation with the records. Ironically,
this idea can be implemented using the emulation.


procedure MyObjFind(var Rec: TMyObjData) with
procedure MyObjFind(const Rec: TMyObjData)

the latter is actual readonly emulation, you won't be able to change
anything and you won't be able to pass this record by reference to any other
