Dear friends,

i have a problem with some inputs under fpc.
I wrote the programs how under Turbo Pascal (Dos), but i do not know,
why the inputs can not be modified.
Here is one example:

program test123;

uses crt;

var name    : string[20];

gotoxy(3,3);writeln('Please enter your name: ');


If i put in the name, i have to do it very correctly, because i cannot
use the key how BACKSPACE or DELETE to modify a sign.

What can i do?
