I’d like to to automate the build with a script but I can’t seem to figure out even the basics of how to make this work (I develop on Mac). I used Lazarus briefly but it seemed easier to just run a single FPC command and make the package by hand (I’m emulating Windows also so it’s kind of hard to use and this scripts are easier).

FPC is installed by default in c:\fpc, I think. The compiler binaries
are somewhere under there (c:\fpc\bin\win32 or so?). I think our
installer adds this directory to your PATH by default under Windows, so
you should be able to use the compiler in a command line window just
like on OS X/macOS.
