[fpc-pascal] Linux Linking Error solved

-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 444104 2006-06-08 04:09 ld

You would think that would allow me to execute it as a normal user.  The 
only thing I shouldn't be able to do as non-root, non-root-group member 
is write it, but...

I was going to copy and paste the output to prove that it didn't  do it, 
but when I tested it this time, it did work.  I swear that the error 
said it couldn't find /usr/bin/ld.  I just did ls, saw it there, with 
the root ownership, and then ran sudo fpc sockser.pas, and the error 
went away.

If you never have the courage to lose sight of the shore,
You'll never know the utter terror of being forever lost at sea
