Then why did this confuse you?  And why on earth would you want to 
weaken Pascal's rules which happen to be its strengths?  There is no 
reason why a developer shouldn't know the language they are using.  
Pascal is a well-established language.  Most of the reason I've always 
used Pascal is because of it's strict adherance to certain rules and 
philosophies, and it's Wirthian nature.  Pascal is the philosophy, not 
the syntax.
