This kind of parameters do not exist on tradiional mac compilers, you have
to use pointers.
Well that is interesting in itself...
I hope this only applies to macintosh operating system API's ?
How would I otherwise port my code to macintosh os with a free pascal
(cross) compiler ;) ?
Don't tell me I have to replace every single var and const parameter ? :)
