The Java language doesn't know the concept of pointers, but the java
byte-code does. You can compile Pascal program for the JVM like you compile
it for IA-32. You can treat the JVM like another CPU target. I think the
.NET VM is identical on this point.

But I am to let Microsoft show is evil plan behind .Net before sign with the
evil :-)
