Hello Wilfried and Francois,

Thanks for the replies.

According to Francois's reply, even if ICS works for FP Windows,
it most likely will not work for FP Mac or FP Linux. I think I'm
better off doing it in C/C++. (If anyone has experience with ICS
working on Kylix/FP, Mac/Linux, I'll be glad to hear about it :)

Best regards,
