I have put it into simple program:
uses Windows, Crt;

....Your code of procedures is here ....

{--- MY MAIN PROGRAM  -----------}
 win_minX:=1;			{coordinates of whole screen}

 writeln('Hi, how are You ?');		{write it at coord. 10,10}
 win_push;				{save it to buffer}
 readln;					{wait for ENTER}
 writeln('Good morning once again.');	{write another message at coord. 10,10}
 readln;					{wait for ENTER}
 win_pull;				{restore screen - it should be message 1}
 readln;					{wait for ENTER}
{ ------ END OF PROGRAM --------}

Please, where is the bug in my program ? It doesn't work. It writes message 1 ("Hi, how are You ?"), waits for ENTER. Then the program writes over it message 2 ("Good morning once again."). It's right. And then, after pressing ENTER, it should restore the message 1. But nothing happens!

Thanks for help
