Array Pointer

I have the following code in a compiled delphi dll.  

library wavelet;

uses
  SysUtils,math,Windows;

type
     aa1=array[0..1000000] of single;
     ar=^ aa1;
var
  MyArr:ar;

function RUNWVL(a:ar; nscales:word; ttc:single):single;stdcall;
begin
     // Do Some work and return a single
end;


I need to access this dll and call RUNWVL from another app.  I'm trying to do like below, but I'm having trouble getting the syntax correct to pass the pointer in. Can someone show me how to pass the pointer to my array into the function?

program testapp;

{$APPTYPE CONSOLE}

uses
  SysUtils,
  Unit1 in 'Unit1.pas';

procedure  RUNWVL( ptrArray:pointer; scales:Integer; stddev:double) ;  stdcall;far;external 'wavelet.dll';
procedure  GETALLVALUES( something:Integer; somethingelse:Integer) ;  stdcall;far;external 'wavelet.dll';

type
    aa1= array of double;
    pcloseList=^ aa1;

var
    f: TextFile;
    line:string;
    date:string;
    time:string;
    close:string;
    scale:string;
    scales:Integer;
    count:Integer;
    start:Integer;
    stop:Integer;
    closeList: aa1;
    scaleList: array of double;
    t: double;
    y: double;procedure ExecuteProgram;



  begin
      scales := 9;


          // Open file for reading
          AssignFile(f, 'c:\wavelet\testdata');
          Reset(f);

          count := 0;
          ReadLn(f, line);
          SetLength(closeList, scales * scales);
          SetLength(scaleList, scales * scales);

          // Read each line
          while not Eof(f) do
          begin
            if count = ( scales * scales ) then
            begin
              // Run Wavelet
              t := RUNWVL(closeList, scales, 3);
              for count := 1 to scales do
                begin
                  // Get the wavelet values
                  y := GETALLVALUES(1, count);
                end;


              count:=0;


            end
            else
            begin
            // Fill array with data from file
             ReadLn(f, line);

             stop:= pos(',', line);
             date:= copy(line, 0, stop - 1);
             line := copy(line, stop + 1);

             stop:= pos(',', line);
             time:= copy(line, 0, stop - 1);
             line := copy(line, stop + 1);

             stop:= pos(',', line);
             close:= copy(line, 0, stop - 1);
             line := copy(line, stop + 1);

             scale := line;

             scaleList[count] := StrToFloat(scale);
             closeList[count] := StrToFloat(close);

             count:= count + 1;

            end;





          end;

          CloseFile(f);
//           Close(f);

         WriteLn('running proggy');
  end;

begin
      try
        ExecuteProgram;
      except
        WriteLn('WTF');


      end;
      ExitCode := 1;
end.

first add to the library wavelet the following:

exports RUNWVL, GETALLVALUES;

at the end.

then call the function like:

t := RUNWVL(@closeList, scales, 3);

then declare your aa1 as array of single and not double. single is 4 bytes. double is 8 bytes. same goes for all other doble/single variables in your code.

that's what I see for now.
