Pascal programming

Pascal is one of the landmark computer programming languages on which generations of students "cut their teeth" and variants of which are still widely used today. The popular typesetting system TeX and much of the original Macintosh operating system were written in Pascal.

The Swiss computer scientist Niklaus Wirth developed Pascal in 1970, first as a hypothetical language that would encourage students to write structured code. Pascal is based on the Algol programming language and is named in honor of mathematician and philosopher Blaise Pascal. Wirth also developed Modula-2 and Oberon, languages similar to Pascal which also support object-oriented programming.
