I'll have to agree with the second comment, not the first.

I use fpc for statistical simulation programs, many of which run
for 6 weeks or more (with different pieces of the simulation
running in parallel on 6-8 different PCs).  From my experience
with interpreted systems, these projects would take _years_
on the even fastest of those.

fpc is a great tool--much appreciated!
