No, it does not. FPC mainly supports Borland-style Pascal dialects, and they are not ISO Standard/Extended Pascal compliant. If you want to write ISO Pascal programs, GPC (http://www.gnu-pascal.de/gpc/h-index.html) is probably better suited to your needs.


PS: please use a descriptive mail subject in the future.
