Comparision of Pascal and Borland Delphi

Pascal is a programming language, developed in 1970 by Niklaus Wirth.

An alternative dialect was created by Borland Corporation. Their language went through several versions and names, such as Turbo Pascal, Borland Pascal, and finally Delphi Pascal.

This page briefly goes over the differences between those dialects of the language.

The title of this page "Comparison between Pascal and Delphi" was chosen because Borland uses the name "Delphi" exclusively for their version of the language. It is correct to refer to "Pascal" in general as Niklaus Wirth's original language (and derivatives) and Borland's dialect as "Delphi". When referring to Borland's previous dialects, the terms "Turbo Pascal", and "Borland Pascal" apply.

The Term ISO 7185 or ISO 7185 Pascal is used here as synonymous with Niklaus Wirth's programming language Pascal. The ISO 7185 standard is the standardized version of Niklaus Wirth's language, as he has stated several times.
