Altered units are in a project ( I never use any "package" ) , not loaded
into Lazarus GUI , but their directories are defined .

Yes : Seventeen minutes ( without debug related additions ) .
Processor : Intel i5-3470 , Quad-core . 3.2 GigaHerz
Alongside the ( NOT detecting record element additions / changes /deletions
) , another very important problem for me is to
( Discontinuation of compilation on errors )
although in an item "Display error messages up to 1 000 000 ( million )" is
This number is NOT taken into consideration , and it is stopping
compilation at the end of a unit or after a small number ( around 50 ) .
