With a structure easily portable to Pascal, of course, I presume? I have no
problems coding in C (not many, that is), but when I've got a huge set of
utility routines in Pascal, and it's usually simpler to translate from C to
Pascal to leverage them.

Just don't write unions of void pointers, pointers to functions with a
variable number of arguments, and structures splitting the bits of integers,
please? Delphi isn't meant just for nice front-ends.
