FWIW and as late to the conversation as it is, i must add that it isn't memory 
management that's the big plus for pascal languages... it is the structured 
format that's the biggest plus... ie: define variables in their place before 
using them and not in the middle of code where they may be missed... there is, 
of course, the gun and foot problem that C and C related languages bring to the 
table... that being that they will help one find the gun, point it at their foot 
and it will also putt the trigger for them ;)

my apologies if that seem evangelical and/or off topic ;)
