"Is this really too difficult for people who like to develop software?"

Of course it isn't!  But that is *not* where my tutorial tries to start 
out.  http://www.controlpascal.com/tutorial.htm

I need to think about this more and maybe put together a wiki page that 
summarizes how to *introduce* various people to computers, electronics 
(optional), programming, and Pascal programming.  Maybe this is "ground 

But if you've already had a C++ programming course in college, or if 
you've already used an Arduino or a Raspberry Pi, then of course that 
changes things.  Maybe you're already an embedded programmer that needs 
a fast starting point ('runs on my system, so let's continue) and 
motivating feedback:

There are lots of different people with lots of different needs, and I 
hope we can find ways to introduce more of them to Free Pascal.  Thanks 
for all of your effort!  :)
