In Delphi 7 with just a procedure pointer it accepts both forms. If P is 
a generic pointer and PTS is defined as a Procedure Pointer type, you 
may write either

P := @myProcedure;
PTS := P;


P := @myProcedure;
@PTS := P;

In both cases no error is given and myProcedure is properly called.

As soon as I can put my hands on the right platform, I'll verify what 
happens with Rad Studio X10, and will let you know.

However I'm planning to pass this topic to the fpc list, where I think 
now it belongs.
