[fpc-pascal] Re: cannot make debugserver

Hmm, just a suggestion:

Change all calls to  (I don't know if argument lists are the same, it's
been a long time)
    Listen() to fpListen()
    ShutDown() to fpShutDown()
    Socket to fpSocket()
    Bind() to fpBind()

Prefix symbols:
    Family, port and addr symbols with `sin_`

Make sure that unit sockets is used (normally not a problem). If there
are any other problems, the sort of `wrong number of arguments` or
`wrong argument type`, post them and the associated code, I have a
working TCPserver here which compiles on 2.6, so I'm sure I can lookup
the calls and "translate" them.

I think the cause of the issue is that Listen(), Bind(), etc... where
the previous name of the calls. Most changed to something prefixed with

Note that I can not guarantee that the modified code will work, as there
are probably other incompatibilities lingering around somewhere.

Good luck :-)

Events don't necessarily happen in chronological order; yet somehow they do persist to happen. Sometimes.
