[fpc-pascal] Cancelling Scientific notation

Hallo all,
Thank you for all the answers I have received.
Some more stupid questions please:
1. How can I get fpc to use a comma (,) in stead of a period (.) as the 
separator between whole number and fraction?
2. The window showing the program listing on the screen is rather mall. How 
do I enlarge it to show more lines? I tried clicking and ragging but nothing 
3. I want to print the program listing. I click on Files, print and nothing 
happens. The device is shaown as lst or prn. How do I fix that?

Thanks again.
James Gibbens
