Thanks for using the application!


Pascal is an influential imperative and procedural programming language, designed in 1968/9 and published in 1970 by Niklaus Wirth as a small and efficient language intended to encourage good programming practices using structured programming and data structuring.

A derivative known as Object Pascal designed for object-oriented programming was developed in 1985.

Pascal was developed by Niklaus Wirth and based on the ALGOL programming language, named in honor of the French mathematician and philosopher Blaise Pascal.

Prior to his work on Pascal, Wirth had developed Euler and ALGOL W and later went on to develop the Pascal-like languages Modula-2 and Oberon.

Initially, Pascal was largely, but not exclusively, intended to teach students structured programming. A generation of students used Pascal as an introductory language in undergraduate courses. Variants of Pascal have also frequently been used for everything from research projects to PC games and embedded systems. Newer Pascal compilers exist which are widely used.

Pascal was the primary high-level language used for development in the Apple Lisa, and in the early years of the Mac. Parts of the original Macintosh operating system were hand-translated into Motorola 68000 assembly language from the Pascal sources. The popular typesetting system TeX by Donald E. Knuth was written in WEB, the original literate programming system, based on DEC PDP-10 Pascal, while an application like Total Commander was written in Delphi (Object Pascal).

Object Pascal is still used for developing Windows applications. A cross-platform version called Free Pascal, with the Lazarus IDE, is popular with Linux users since it promises write once, compile anywhere, development.

Works - Reasonable at $3 for unlimited compilations

The only downsides (which are dictated by the iOS platform) are the need to recompile the program each time and the fact that data input cannot occur when the program is running. The program has to be compiled (and presumably run) remotely and the console output is shown locally. This is the only way to run simple Object pascal programs on iOS limited to a single source file. Have not tried anything more complex but easy enough to write on a computer (macOS/Windows/Linux) using Lazarus and send to your iPhone/iPad to run.

Major gripe: still runs FPC 3.0 rather than the latest version.

Developer Response ,

You can buy unlimited compilations and use the application as much as you want!

Seems to support FPC, but I'll never know quite how much. After a few compilations, you need to buy more compilations. So, on that alone I would remove this app. I thought I might hang on to it simply for the reference material. It's really no better than what's available online--since that's all it's really doing anyway--browsing the online documentation. Promising, but mostly as a novelty item. Certainly not very useful unless you want to buy more compilations. How odd is that?

Just buy it and use it as much as you want!

Great App !!!

It is a good app that you can write a pascal program in and run from the editor. Has links to other resources such as "Free Pascal".
