I made a Lazarus GUI program to convert a serial stream to TCP to a
remote server where it was again converted to serial.
The question was raised because I have used APM inside the main loop
of the application in order for it to process stuff like mouse clicks
etc while running the main task.
Then I figured that I should make a console program with the same
functions, but APM is part of the Forms unit and this is not used by a
console. So I was thinking that maybe the data handling wouyld not
work if it was missing...

Now I decided to keep the GUI app and use it interactively when I need
to run against the remote system.
