First please state your operating system so a more useful help could be

Secondly based on the guess that you are running fpc under Windows (I guess
it is XP) I will give you some hints. First what you are probably running is
fpc.exe which is in fact is a console based compiler which for a starter is
not very easy to work with. I would advise you to download Lazarus
http://lazarus.freepascal.org/ as it is a Delphi like GUI for developing
applications with Free Pascal. Another ide is MSEgui
Secondly try running the fpc under the console that is (under XP) run cmd
and the run fpc.exe. You should see a complete list of options supported by
the compiler. If for any reason the fpc could not start it will display a
useful error message and you should post it in here to get more help.
