Freepascal provides some non - GUI classes in the so called FCL (Free
Component Library). TList or its' descendants might prove good candidates
for your task.

There might be some FCL documentation already in the documentation sources.
Else use the FCL sources for further reference. Since you already did some
programming with Delphis VCL there should be no problems; the method naming
is quite straightforward (e.g. identical to Delphi VCL) too. Feel free to
ask here if you're stuck.

Yes they are. I think it would be fine if you put the corrected program
somewhere on a FTP/Web and send a message including a problem description
(what you fixed) and a link to the file to one of the developers (see
http://www.freepascal.org/ , developers) or to FPC - Devel or here.
