I am not aware of any Pascal implementation that does have a STEP 
parameter for FOR loops, and I am programming in Pascal at least as long 
as you... ;-)

The closest would be the FOR..IN variant, which works in Delphi (D2006? 
and later) and is AFAIK supported in FPC by now. But that would be 
iterating over a set, not increment an integer/cardinal variable in an 
increment other than 1...
