Been looking at the code conversion guide,

I have updated Unit changes including description and reasons, and added
more Syntax changes and descriptions including partial code examples of
them. If I messed up or missed or made any error I would like others to
fix it.. 

I would very much like to see this particular wiki cleaned up and well
organized, since this could be very usefull for an in depth tutorial(or
even small book eventualy) on converting from Delphi to FPC/LCL,
starting with Unit differences, then Syntax differences then into Object
differences, but also covering more in depth use situations on porting
whole applications, as well as caveats of porting components and
packages et al. 

Documentation is one area Lazarus in general is missing and I would
really like to see thrive soon, as, if Lazarus is ever going to succeed
as a functional alternative to Delphi, people are going to need
documentation on both use for new beginners as well as porting and
overall conversion from Delphi for advanced users.

So anyway enough rambling, again, thanks for starting this, I am very
pleased with how it looks already and it can only improve with the
contribution of others. :)
