Okay... I need to explain. The program is a game which I wrote for M$
Windows when I used M$ Windows XP Home Edition (some time ago!). It was
developed in Delphi 5 Enterprise for early versions, then Delphi 7 Select

The version you see in a sub-folder of .wine (WINE) is a version of it which
I compiled and ran using Delphi 7 Select Edition and running with WINE. The
program and its source code is available on SourceForge.com here [
http://sourceforge.net/projects/frog-retro-game/ ]. I don't really want to
re-compile a version of it for M$ Windows unless necessary.

My aim is to port the code to Lazarus and create Linux and hopefully even
Mac versions of it available.

The component which I am referring to in my email is one which my game uses
(in Delphi). I'm really hoping that there is a Lazarus component which does
effectively the same thing. { I hope I explained that well enough. }

Fond Regards and Best Wishes,
from Hobart, Tasmania, Australia
