>Description:
Any kind of timestamp-variable/-parameter can't be exported from a unit.
Compiler always gives a message:

"Timestamp record parameter required"

>How-To-Repeat:
unit t1;

interface

var t:timestamp;

implementation

end.

{--------------------------------------------}

program t2(input,output);

uses t1;

begin
  writeln(date(t));
end.

>Fix:
workaraound:

define a new timestamp-type eg. ttimestamp,
then define new functions bug_date, bug_time, bug_gettimestamp 
using an absolute variable conversion

eg. 

type ttimestamp=timestamp;
     
function bug_date(tt:ttimestamp):TString;
var t:timestamp absolute tt;
begin
  bug_date:=date(t);
end;
