: : hi.
: : i am trying to include a downloaded unit into free pascal. whatever the directory of the unit or whether i use a default .ppu or compile a .pp unit and then try ot use it, it doesn't work.
: : can someone give me a "beginner's guide to including units"? i used tp before, but am new to fp.
: If the unit came in source form, it should work just fine so long as the directory you placed the unit into is in the Include Directory in the compiler options.
: If the unit came in compiled form, youre out of luck unfortunately. Compiled units can only be used with the compiler they were created with.
> the units may not be workin because of the wrong directory, u should have a folder called units, u can try to copy and paste all the units that u have from the the units folder into the Bin folder. that should work , it worked for me !
