yall on this, its where I'm at with FPOS, as soon as I find a new

know C very well, but have a few links to port the code pretty much
intact.I'm doing the reverse from obj C to obj P/Delphi with no issues

Are we going to get replacements for ideinfo and idestatus at all?

for seeing this information
