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.

Re: where's the help file?

Yes, that of Free Pascal is useful as well. There is a small but great html-browser built into the IDE. First you download the documentation. Select help -> files and add index.html from the directory rtl and ref.html from the directory ref.

To make it better, old Turbo Pascal .tph files are also accepted and you can also add any other html documentation you download from the internet.

Have fun!
