You are answering to Philippe who wrote:


1. There is no pointer arithmetic in Pascal. As the array type exists, this arithmetic is useless. Moreover, you can implement it by casting to integer, and perform usual arithmetic, but this practice is not in the spirit of Pascal language, which is stongly structured.
Declare buffer as an array of integer and juste write buffer[1]:=10;
2. Direct cast is not allowed in standard Pascal and is not implemented in PP. Use a "record case of" type, which is the Pascal equivalent of "union" in C :
var pori= record case integer of 0:(p:pointer); 1:(i:integer) end; // pointer or integer
begin
pori.p:=ptr;
i:=pori.i;
end;
This can be useful when translating a program from C, but shoud not occurs in a program designed in Pascal.
3. The procedure type is not a pointer type. It cannot have a nil value. You can perform a cast of a procedure type to a pointer type by using an union (record case of)

I hope this helps.
