I think Pascal still IS useful. Delphi is very powerful tool for people who develop simple Windows applications and even something more complicated due to ActiveX-like components system. Compiler is very fast, but not the output itself Although I currently use only and entirely VC++, I don't think Pascal is unuseful. If you take a look at any graphical algorithms book, it's Pascal what is usually used for describing an entity of an algorithm.gnu-ehacks
Pascal? Is that still even useful? I haven't heard about that for a while now. I'm currently trying to teach myself ASM and some web scripting languages.
