Absolutely. A lot of (up-them-selves) programmers tend to believe that
pascal is a dead language, a language for kids. I'm happy to read of
such a post. Just as a matter of interest, pascal might be an old
language, a strongly typed language, but it is certainly NOT dead and
any of my software engineer lecturers will agree with it's use as a
language for developing software.

my 2 cents...
