I would like to use TObjectList from Contnrs (because it occurs in
some Delphi application that I wish to compile with FreePascal).

There are two problems:

  (1)  The compiler does not find the unit Contnrs.  It turns out
       that this unit resides in


       which the compiler does not find by itself (it does find Classes in
       Of course, I can change my fpc.cfg, but shouldn't this just work?
       Or should I do something else to use FCL units?

  (2)  The FCL (RTL?) documentation does not mention Contnrs (it does mention

It would be useful to include a link on "FCL - Free Component Library"
(fcl/fcl.html) to the online documentation


However, it is not completely clear to me where the boundary is between
RTL and FCL.  Classes is listed under FCL, and is documented under RTL.
