Sorry for being unclear !! (This obviously is just an issue of the word
The contrary is true. Lazarus (at least in Linux) is able to compile
real "pure run through" command line tools, while Delphi (AFAIK) just
does normal "Applications" that don't show the main Windows and calls
this a "Console Program".
In Linux, a Lazarus Console application can be used on hardware with no
GUI system installed.
So Bo supposedly is save if he selects "Application" and not "Console
Application" when setting up his project. In fact on a PI a GUI system
is active by default.
Other than MSE, a Lazarus "Console Application" can't use TTimer, this
might not be relevant for Bo on Pi.
