Nowadays the user has full control over his printer, its capabilities, 
and a bunch of tools to provide listings in various formats, fonts etc. 
No need for adding all that to an compiler, as opposed to batch 
processing on old mainframes.

Have a look at Lazarus, where you'll find tools that can do much more 
than the old mainframe utilities.
