I use Emacs most of the time to edit my Pascal (and all other :) ) code.
But it has it's learning curve. And, although there are various
code-completion and code-browser features, not much Pascal-specific
support is available (e.g. no Pascal on
http://cedet.sourceforge.net/languagesupport.shtml). So you end up using
generic code completion (e.g. by dabbrev, or
http://www.emacswiki.org/emacs/AutoComplete), which is very dumb
compared to how Lazarus completes.

So if you want code features that need integration with Pascal code
(code browser, code completion etc.), go with what everyone says: Lazarus :)
