I guess that is another way of saying that you can compile C program
modules (f.ex. DLL's) in C and have you FPC-program call the resulting
DLL functions even though it's not produced by FPC itself.
In other words you don't have to translate your C source to Pascal
in order to utilize it from a Pascal program, using FPC.
