Hello all,

I am a new programmer, and I thought I'd learn Pascal. I saw that with
FreePascal, most users are using Lazarus. I don't want to use this and
would rather work in the console, and use the free pascal IDE. I'm not
really interested in using any GUI tools. I was looking for a book that
teaches free pascal without the GUI stuff, that has a lot of examples in
it, but i cannot find anything of the sort. This has made me turn to Turbo
Pascal books, and i am currently reading "Learn Turbo Pascal in three
days". When i use the free pascal IDE to write code, and compile it, i have
no issues. When i go to run my program, any text i have printed, will mix
in with the terminal/console text, and doesn't just print at the bottom
like i would expect. This has made me turn to using emacs, and then just
compiling the code in the terminal using "fpc -Mtp <filenname.pas>". My
question is, id like to use the free pascal IDE, and learn the more
modern(?) form of pascal, but i cannot find a resource for beginners that
will teach me with a lot of examples, and not walls of text, just for
non-GUI applications. Does anyone know if such a book exists? Many thanks!
