You may create descendat from TThread class & place u'r code in
overrided procedure Execute. See \examples\fcl\threads.pp, but don't
pay too mach attention at how this example works because it seems to
be unstable under Windows 2000 (at least). I think that console output is
not thread safe part of FP I/O system.

Apropos, test thread program I wrote runs under Win32 without any
problem, but crashes under Linux (fpc 1.0.10). %-\
