Pascal is an imperative and procedural programming language, which Niklaus Wirth designed in 1968–69 and published in 1970, as a small, efficient language intended to encourage good programming practices using structured programming and data structuring. It is named in honor of the French mathematician, philosopher and physicist Blaise Pascal.[1]

Basics[edit | edit source]

Pascal is a relatively straightforward language. It is widely used as a first programming language in computer science classes. It is used extensively for teaching beginning programming in countries outside the USA. It can be self-taught by a highly motivated student. Having a mentor can facilitate formal classes and independent students. This page hopes to fill that function.
