    I'm planning on using Free Pascal as I get back into Pascal development.

    Awesome. I find it great.

    fpc is where it is at.

    I like Pascal, maybe oneday I will write a language that uses it's
    syntax in an even better way (improves upon it in my opinion and still
    keeps thing easy :)).

    I like Pascal too, and am enjoying relearning the language, FPC is an awesome compiler. :)

    Very fun. I love the syntax. Old languages are fun. I was never around
    in those times (born in 1999) but hell do I love them. My grand mother
    was a systems analyst and did Fortran, COBOL, Pascal and probably more
    back in those days.

    I did BASIC, Pascal and FORTRAN in the 80s-90s. Never had to deal with COBOL,
    because my studies were in engineering. I particularly enjoyed Pascal and FORTRAN, Pascal, particularly Turbo Pascal, had a lot of great features. FORTRAN was awesome for engineering type problems, with built in support for complex numbers (used all the time in communication and power systems) - no need for my normal complex number types and procedures, which I kept up my sleeve for programs. From memory, the complex type was a record with 2 fields
    of type real - "real" and "imaginary".

    I love how the type is a record. Just makes me feel happy to see data structures. Probably just a programmer thing. :) You feel me right XD?

    I never got my head around C. One reason was a really bad lecturer at uni, who
    also put me off *NIX, until I had a project that required Linux, then I was hooked. :-) But for C, the damage was done, and I haven't had the time to learn a totally new language. For me, the hardest part is not the structure of
    a program, but the specifics. My natural mode of thought is non verbal (and probably worth a PhD study :D ), my memory is such that I remember broader concepts rather than syntactic speciicifics, except for special cases, and my recall is pretty ordinary, meaning for anything I don't regularly use, I need a
    reference guide with me all the time that I can look up in reasonable time.

    Pascal fares much better, much of it having been in long term memory at some stage. Refreshing/relearning is much quicker than something totally new, because my recognition, which is well above average, can assist greatly.

    Cooleo. Well atleast it is a useful language, Pascal that is and you can
    get stuff done in it. Infact a language, Nim, had its compiler written
    in Pascal and it is a new language so yeah. One up man!
