[fpc-pascal] Redirecting input to a child process

I don't see where you close the mProcess.input.
I tried several things myself which didn't work:
- ctrl Z Return is an eof when you run more in a cmd window.
- call explicitly CloseHandle(mProcess.Input.Handle);
Pipes.pp doesn't have any routines to clean up the pipe handles which is
according to msdn not good. Pipes close when one of the 2 processes stops
but in larger applications this could lead to memory leaks.
Still looking further into it.

Thank you, Ludo, this is great!
But why doesn't the process finish? I thought that the clos- ing of the
write end of the StdIn pipe handle should cause a EOF to be 'seen' at the
read end, but this does not happen.
Maybe these's some explicit way to signal end of input?
