He lurks here, and now sees the err of his ways.

Pascal does not use C headers natively, so *someone* will
have to figure out what it is. At the time the original
bindings were written, the CURLOPT*_LARGE options did not
exist, so when curl_off_t appeared it didn't seem very
interesting to me. (the object wrapper and demo programs
only used the options that take a long.)

KD> Is the binding really used anywhere?

According to sourceforge, it's been downloaded 3688 times,
but of course that doesn't mean anyone ever actually used it.

KD> Maybe the 'varargs;' is the way to pass the third argument

Yes, that's correct. It means basically the same as ... in C.

You seem to be quite determined to get this thing working.

I would love to see someone with such a passion for Delphi
take over maintenance of the CurlPas project, since I no
longer use Delphi/Kylix/FPC at all these days.

Feel free to contact me off-list if you (or anyone else)
are interested.
