Pascal is a classical procedural programming language that facilitates structured programming. It advantages include english-like elegant source code style, a plethora of data types and a broad basis of implementations on both virtual and physical machines. Most modern Pascal compilers implement ObjectPascal, an extension for object-oriented programming that has first been proposed by Apple and that was later augmented by Borland.
There are numerous Pascal dialects for embedded systems:
