You can install fpc using fink (command: fink install fpc). The stable  
tree of fink has fpc 2.2.2; 2.2.4 is in the unstable tree. I intend to  
move the 2.2.4 version to the stable tree in a timeframe of a few  
(2-4) weeks.

"fink install fpc" also installs the FPC IDE.
You can start it in the terminal with the command "fp".

The advantage of using fink is the clean uninstall with the purge  
command of fink as well as crosscompilers for IntelMacs.

The FPC IDE has not been worked on lately, as you may notice. In order  
to access the menus you have to press ESC and the short cut letter,  
for example "F". Other IDEs are definitely nicer and easier to use. I  
would say, using it is either for the die-hard FPC IDE user or as a  
last resort for use through a terminal connection.

Best wishes - Michael Schindler
