Ok, this project concept will work.

I have an issue with putting files into subdirectories those. I tried
using the Synapse library for my socket programming tests, and I placed
the source files in a "Lib" subdirectory. How do I get the compiler to
properly see those files? I fiddled around with the settings in the IDE
and managed to get the files compiling, so the compiler saw them, but
once I did that I failed to see some of the standard libraries so I must
have done it the wrong way. In the Delphi IDE this can happen if I
change the library search path without keeping the original bits and
pieces, I suppose there's some trick like this in the FP IDE also, but
I've seen no default search path to leave untouched...
