If the problem is the alignment, you can try to read element by element.
What about using the 'packed' directive ?
testData = record
testIndex : packed array [0..12] of integer;
Wouldn't that solve any alignment problems ?
Or doesn't free pascal have a 'packed' directive ?
Or is it a reallllly strange mac problem ? :)
