In my previous post i forgot to mention that the assumption would be valid for considering Delphi compatibility (but i could only say that after rvk's verification).

@joho: No problem, and apologies in case i had it wrong. I understand that you wanted a better understanding. Your initial replies seem to suggest you have only windows API in mind (which is also not wrong but projecting imho is).

Yes, other platforms usually also have something similar to findfirst/findnext (or can be simulated in a similar way) but the allocation of platform specif resources sometimes just work differently.

You'll most probably notice that many differences in platform can be located in routines that work with files and/or handles. In order to implement certain RTL from FPC there are sometimes quite some differences in implementation required in order to let things work as described by the RTL.
