[fpc-pascal] Free Pascal - Older Versions

Hello all,

My name is Luiz and I'm a Masters student at Brazil. This is my first
e-mail in this list.

In my Masters research, I've acquired from the author some codes in Pascal,
a language I've never worked with. I need to make some small modifications
to the code and recompile it, but I'm not having success with the latest
version of Free Pascal, the compiler recommended by the author.

I've researched some of the errors that I have and I think there are some
incompatibilities with changes added to newer versions of Free Pascal.
Since I never worked with Pascal, I would rather change the original code
the least I can. So, I'd like to test older versions of the Free Pascal
compiler and see if I can compile with them. I understand that older
versions are not supported and it's always better to use the latest
version, but I have evidence that lead me to believe that the code is
"right", but inconsistent with newer versions, and I think the correct path
would be to first try to compile it with older versions of FPC before
changing it and trying to make it compile with the latest one.

I've found some older versions in this link:
http://www.freepascal.org/down/old/down.var. But, for Win32, the oldest
version I've found was the 2.2.2. Is this the oldest version for Win32? Is
there a place where I could access even older versions of the compiler?

This would really help my research to move forward!

Thanks in advance for any help!
