With out the declaration of the functions and variables, it is 
impossible to say what's wrong. Also, the cursor is always placed on the 
exact location where this symbol is expected, not just on the line.

Anyway, your programs contains a lot of other errors too: you always 
write thing like

if blablabla then

The error here is that before else, you must not put a ";". In 
Pascal, ";" marks the end of a statement and "if .. then .. else .." is 
one statement.
