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.

Its been almost 15 years since i programed in Pascal but i loved it when i was doing it. From what i understand it was primarily used to teaching. I will defintely put on my programming hat again to see if i still have it. One question does it come with an installer? if i do generate useful binaries how hard is it to distribute the files?
