   I don't think I've ever seen the former. This is useful stuff to know!

   Don't mention the C-word around me! ;-)

   I have a Pascal book, but it only covers Standard Pascal, plus brief
mention of some of the common extensions. Until I got the FPC, all I had
was the standard stuff. I'm really enjoying having the extra flexibility -
parameter passing, accessing the OS, strings, etc. (but it takes a little
while to learn how to use the new toys).
