GNU Pascal is the free 32/64-bit Pascal compiler of the GNU Compiler
Collection (GNU CC or GCC). It combines a Pascal front-end with the
proven GCC back-end for code generation and optimization. Unlike
utilities such as p2c, this is a true compiler, not just a converter.

The purpose of the GNU Pascal project is to produce a Pascal compiler
(called GNU Pascal or GPC) which

* combines the clarity of Pascal with powerful tools suitable for
real-life programming,
* supports both the Pascal standard and the Extended Pascal standard
as defined by ISO, ANSI and IEEE (ISO 7185:1990, ISO/IEC
10206:1991, ANSI/IEEE 770X3.160-1989),
* supports other Pascal standards (UCSD Pascal, Borland Pascal,
parts of Borland Delphi and Pascal-SC) in so far as this serves the
goal of clarity and usability,
* may be distributed under GNU license conditions, and
* can generate code for and run on any computer for which the GNU C
compiler can generate code and run on.

The current release implements Standard Pascal (ISO 7185, levels 0 and
1), a large subset of Extended Pascal (ISO 10206, aiming for full
compliance), is highly compatible to Borland Pascal (version 7.0) with
some Delphi extensions, and provides a lot of useful GNU extensions.
