PascalABC
« on: October 30, 2015, 02:08:20 pm »
I just happen to come across this: http://pascalabc.net

The cousin of FPC?
I thought Delphi was expensive until I learned the price of ExtJS

More a cousin of C#. See e.g. the way variables are declared inside procedural blocks, and the need to repeat "var" and "foreach" instead of for .. in.

IOW it looks more a curly braces (C,Java,C#) language with tokens substituted than a real Pascal parser, or at the very least a C#-Pascal hybrid

I glanced at the first screenshot on the website and I feel something is wrong with the code in the screenshot but silly me, I don't know what... until I read your post :D

Somebody brings back the dead GPC to live! :o
I remember GPC was the only Pascal implementation that offers declarations as statements and inline loop variable declaration. Also the only one being written in C, until its death 4-5 years ago.

It's not Pascal. It's something strange. Pascal+C#.NET

Looks like a free alternative to Oxygene, which is good. :)
