Why ignorance? I remember someone asking here how to learn programming
with FPC/Lazarus and someone else answered that each Delphi learning
book would do. How does that fit together when such huge differences
between Lazarus and Delphi exist?

A much better way would be to improve the converter in that it gives
hints about the different coding of strings. This would be enough.

Why "garbage"? A correct and running Delphi program was converted to
Lazarus with the converter, how can it be garbage?
