As mentioned by Sven, there's probably no reason for any adapting it - 
people porting Turbo Pascal code use Dos.Find* rather than the sysutils 
version and since Dos.FindFirst doesn't return a handle directly (it's 
hidden within the SearchRec record), calling Dos.FindClose always is the 
safest bet.
