Hey,

Does any one know of a good pascal compiler other turbo pascal or the bloodshed one. If possible free.
The bloodshed one just dosnt work 100% right on my pc. Also anyone know of any win32 tutorials for pascal? and if so which compiler is best for win32.

Thanks
TNT

You could make the move to Delphi. You can get a Personal Edition compiler and IDE from Borland. I used to use freepascal (not sure if it's still around though).

The Delphi product is a RAD IDE and omponent/class library. The language underneath it is Object Pascal, originally an Apple development, used extensively by Borland, (the later Turbo Pascal compilers used it as well).

Delphi is damned good in fact. Whenever I have to knock together a demo or something, I always use Delphi. Makes database work so easy, you'd wonder why anyone would use anything else. The COM implementation is also quite good.
