Ok, so lots of code...
Two possibilities come to mind:
1. Using automatic conversion from C to Pascal but then the code would still
have to be checked by humans.
2. Only convert certain portions which are most interesting to people.
Linux's tcp/ip stack.
So that for example Linux gui might be improved by pascal programmers ;) :)
Is that possible ? ;)
