Hi

I found it interesting that Wolfgang is making those .exe to replace the IBM ones. (According to what I understood from the translation).

Instead of asking for a financial exchange for the binaries, it will be great if Wolfgang can try to make this project open source and asks for donation, or set a "donation goal" like bitwise work does.  He can even put everything under GNU GPL to be sure that future enhancements of his software will be open too. Those will be great source code assets for people that like Pascal too.

Or GNU LGPL so that licenses can be mixed and Wolfgangs code stays open

I agree with both you and Martin. That said, I feel adequate to reward Wolfgang.
