yes i know this re-typing word(xxx), it is OK.

Second - new FPC v1.9.x for statement

var p:pointer

shows error "Incompatible types: got "FarPointer" expected "Pointer"".

I found i can declare var p:farpointer;
but i did not found any description for this type of pointer
how can i use it.

 Hi (word (xxx)) should work everywhere if you need to specify
the size explicitely. You're right that it should be documented,
of course.
