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.

Powerful as you need......

The Pascal language can be the powerful as you want...
I've benn programming since 1995 into C and Pascal, and
frankly, the generated code are simetrical fast, just write it clean and inteligently. There's no base of comparasion because there isn't out there to much software written in Pascal, but that's a good start of thinking in creating such that software. Open communities to do such a job would be nice and very welcomed. I'll surely join to one.
