Done. My fault was the following declaration:

var inbuffer: array of char;

This is a better declaration:

var inbuffer: array[0..10] of char;

Now I got my code working. Hidden pointers are new to me. Therefore I 
felt in trouble with it. Secondly, it appears to be necessary to use the 
fpc compiler as "root", not simply as a user, I guess.

Best regards, Holger
