[fpc-pascal] Sockets Unit Demos - RTL Manual Pg 1056

The docs say the socket unit is ported to windows. 

The two programs (thereabout pg. 1056) named server and client, do not
seem to work 100%. 

I tried on windows - and there was an issue at (what ended up begin line
31 in my server.pas test program from the manual) this line:

If not Accept(S,  FromName,    Sin,    Sout ) Then

The compiler complained about the data type for FromName. 

I learn much better when I have a working example - that I can use as a
starting point for experimenting etc.

Does anyone have a simple client/server example of the sockets unit that
will compile on both linux and win32?

Thank you,
Jason P Sage
