I've tried mode FPC and ObjFPC with both long and short strings. I have just
tried again with the ShortString type as well (I've included the whole main
unit code below for reference).
I suspect that I need to link additional object files that support the string
handling, but I don't know which ones, nor if this is possible with the
Function Main: Integer; Cdecl;
Function Main: Integer; Cdecl; Alias: 'main';
RXDPIN = 11;
TXDPIN = 9;
CTSPIN = 10;
RTSPIN = 8;
Text := 'Hello World';
UARTConfigure(RTSPIN, TXDPIN, CTSPIN, RXDPIN, True);
