Pascal Report to SC22 Plenary August 2003
The current Pascal and Extended Pascal standards are under
maintenance within J9 and no major developments are
contemplated at this time. There has been correspondence
among the committee members, and an electronic ballot has
ISO/IEC 7185:1990 Pascal defines the simple base language.
It was reconfirmed in 2000 for a further period. The U.S.
Pascal standard is a reference to this document, and in a
ballot earlier this year the committee recommended that it
be classified as a "stabilised standard".
ISO/IEC 10206:1991 defines the Extended Pascal language.
It was reconfirmed in 2001 for a further period, and was
adopted as the US standard in place of the ANSI/IEEE
definition, which was identical in technical content.
The possibility of making this a stabilized standard was
rejected at that time.
The implementation of Extended Pascal for Windows continues
to prove useful as a vehicle for porting code from older
versions to present-day machines.
