General Development After five years of development, Free Pascal 2.0 is ready. With the new compiler, its authors believe they are ready to become a larger open source development platform. In the MS-DOS world, Pascal was one of the major programming languages and is by means of Borland Delphi an important programming language in the Windows world. In the open source world, Free Pascal is the leading Pascal compiler and while open source is a bit biased using the C language, the Pascal language has a lot to offer to open source programmers.

Very nice development tool

I have been using FreePascal for various projects since the early 1.0 days. I have always been impressed by the speed of the compiler, good implementation of current Delphi language standards, and its cross-platform support.

Definitely worth looking at!
