I am completely new to FPC, so I may miss something obvious ...
I am trying to write UDF function for InterBase on Linux (RH6.2), which
is based on standard Pascal Format function. I have already done this
for IB for Win in Delphi with no problem. I have found out that FPC
contains many units I recognize from Delphi so I thought it shouldn't
cause serious troubles. Unfortunately this is not the case. Are the
following functions from SYSUTILS unit supposed to work : Format, StrFmt
? When I use those, the library compiles but doesn't work and I have to
kill IB client.

I based my work on free UDF from Frank Schlottmann-Goedde. The original
UDF library compiles and works OK so I don't think it is caused by wrong
compiler settings ...
I have FPC 1.0.2 installed.

Thanks a lot for any useful input,
