I can't comment the first part, but where exactly is a type named "float"
defined in FPC (which unit)? E.g. single is defined in unit System and
thus available for all FPC programs automatically. If some unit defines
"float" (not sure about that, but it might be the case). I can see the
System unit for Java defining "jfloat" as an alias to single - maybe you
meant that one?

Hope this helps
