[fpc-pascal] Basic Windows tutorial

Ok, I did some reading and found out there is an anchoring plugin you can install that makes it one window, which is great.

Some questions:

I started a project using the “simple application” template which made a console window I don’t really want. Is there a way to remove that window? I don’t see any code which is creating it.

Can I route STDOUT (does that exist on Windows?) from writeln to the message window in Lazarus? That’s pretty typical for development and I can’t see where it’s going right now.

Do I need to do anything in Lazarus to package application resources (like images, data files) or do I just include them in the same directory as the executable? That’s just a general Windows question I guess but Lazarus seems to have a guy for this.

For your purposes you'd just need to start with the correct project template and the IDE would still assist you with its powerful codetools.
