- A guide how to make code written in C or C++ accessible in Pascal. Thanks to Gilles Marcou!
- Our manuals are written for people who already know how to program in Pascal. If you are looking for information how you can learn Pascal, Tao Yue's Learn Pascal Tutorial is a good choice. There is also a list of books available in the wiki. The windows unit is not documented in Free Pascal. The reason for this is that this is a HUGE unit, which would describe the complete win32 API, and that is not the purpose of this documentation.
