Standards documents


I have received a request to remove the ISO 7185 and ISO 10206 standards documents. I was led to believe that they were draft documents and that the ISO did not claim copyright status over them, as the ISO often releases draft documents. However, if there is any doubt over the proper placement of documents here, I will remove them if requested. And I have been so requested.

It is most unfortunate since I invested considerable effort in the HTML conversion of the ISO 7185 document.

What remains here is Wirth's original Pascal material, and the Pascaline document.


Wirths 1973 Revised Pascal

The 1973 report on standard Pascal


The Programming Language Pascal: 1973 revised edition - PDF (Adobe Acrobat).

The revised Pascal language was defined by Nicklaus Wirth in 1972, and was the standard for the language until 1982, when it was replaced by ISO 7185. Although not blessed as an international standard, Wirth several times referred to it as the standard for Pascal.


Pascaline


The Pascaline Standard - HTML.

The Pascaline Standard - Adobe Acrobat/.PDF format.

The Pascaline Standard - Word 2007/.docx format.

The Pascaline Standard - Word 1998-2003/.doc format.

Pascaline is an updated and standardized form of the language I use for my compilers. Included in Pascaline are extentions for file handling, modular format, classes and objects, arbitrary array/string length handling, procedure, function and operator overloads, exception handling, asserts, and a number of other extentions.

Pascaline is Pascal brought up to the level of C#, but without the loss of type security inherent in other extended Pascals.

This is a preliminary version of the standard, but I invite you to take look and comment on it.
