Has anyone an idea how to make a Pascal compatible type out of this?

The type for this is :

function ColorCode ( r,g,b : Smallint ) : Word;

This declaration is equal to given C declaration and is correct for Delphi 3 (and probably 4) if int in C (the version this declaration designed for) is 16bit integer (if it is 32bit replace SmallInt with Integer).
Here Word is unsigned 16bit integer and Smallint is signed 16bit integer.
