Do you refer to using the unit source file (*.pas) or the compiled files
(*.tpu/*.tpp/*.tpw)? The compiled unit files cannot be used with FPC for
various reasons.

Considering the references to TP 7.0, I'd suspect that the poster referred
to console programs. Information about the target platform is obviously
still very important, of course, and a sample program showing which
particular functions/units are used for data entry together with
description of the observed behaviour / problem is important.
