I don't really want to alter the sources (which are more than 100 units).

I'd rather find the unit where WriteLn() procedure is defined and alter 
it once and recompile FPC/Lazarus.

But, I just can't locate where WriteLn procedure is defined. I did a 
grep (equivalent in Windows) but came up with nothing usable.
