You mean ToPas?
It's a very powerful tool...

Right, your config is inappropriate.

Seems also to be config related.

Right, and somebody tried to port it to Lazarus, last year.

When it's as simple, why then do you need a tool?
In contrast to other *heuristic* converters, ToPas is an *exact*
converter. This means that it requires the C compiler, that allows to
compile the given modules and header files. It's not the compiler
itself, but all its header files and predefined macros must be
available, before a conversion can succeed.

It's usable only with a correct configuration, not really different from
FPC and Lazarus ;-)
