I can't believe this old software has not become freeware yet?! We use this program by Borland at school for Windows, and I've been trying to find it online to work at home...no luck! Anyone know a good freeware version that is very similar to it?

it seems we are not going to make the switch till next year. my class is the last to use it.
dev pascal is really good, but is there a way for me to get it to use the compiler from Turbo Pascal 7?

Next year in school we start with Java. I hope I can do some funny things with it :wink:

I think v5 is free for download at the borland website, and i use TP at college, even though i know it inside out and i know C/C++ and all the shit. They use Pascal cos its really easy to learn and the fundamentals learned in Pascal can be adapted into c, giving them a better grounding in programming.

well, the primary goal of the development of pascal was for it to be used for teaching the structured programming concept, i guess that's why they stick with it. Still, it's kinda like a blast from the past .. hehe .. :p

the AP exam is now in C++ (I took it the very first year it was in C++) supposed to be in JAVA in 2003. And I know someone that would know where to get Turbo PASCAL in freeware, only if I can contact him now.

Well, i still having Pascal and C (not C++) classes in my College. And you can get it on the site of borland. There is a section there called museum, that holds all old software of Borland and you can get almost everything from there for free.

I checked the Museum section of Borland, but do these versions of pascal work in windows. i'm trying to avoid those that run in DOS, which is all i've found so far... :(

i think most of those compilers were made for dos. i seriously doubt that there were windows compilers unless they made a visualpascal or something..

Visualpascal? What you mean delphi :rolleyes:?

As for them just producing dos code? naw, you can get turbo pascal for windows that produces both dos and windows code, and TP7 for dos can produce windows code too....

TP7, yeah i have that.. and any dos app you've compiled/made on that doesn't work when using 98 or i dunno maybe anything above 6.22.. im not really sure why.. they just crap out and give some shit error code..

I have a good copy of turbo with the complier and everything. but it is for dos. I agree with Bgnome, i don't think they have compliers for windows. Make sure that you get the patch for turbo if you're computer is faster than 200mhz i think. that's why Xeven is getting that error message. "cannot divide by zero". I think I have all the stuff. contact me on ICQ and i'll send it to you. make sure you tell me what its about or i'll just delete you if i don't know you.

divide by 0? or runtime error 200?
there's a patch program available from the net that can fix that problem in most old dos programs (read: games).

They do, Turbo Pascal 7 for dos can produce windows code straight after an install, and so can turbo pascal for windows. Trust me, i used them for years :rolleyes:

It is nice to see so many people learning computing.
My first years in undergrad were terrible , because when i was admitted in University the only thing that i had programmed was my VCR ... :D
But now i know one trick or two, started with Pascal then C in Linux and Win32, Java :) ,Lisp:confused: , Prolog:eyes: , then Assembly, yeah!! assembly , it is cool but too off market, now i´m dedicated to C.
Here go some links to compilers:


Pascal -> http://www.tmt.com/
C -> http://www.cs.virginia.edu/~lcc-win32/

Yeah, i used that too. But i didnt like it at all. I still prefer Delphi. But i dont do much programs anyway :p mostly for college. That still havent decided if we will learn Pascal, C or Assembly. (Hope they dont choose the last one. the only time ive tried it i couldnt understand a thing)
