Pascal Poll '99
Bill Catambay, Pascal Central Editor



Recently, the Pascal programmers on the MacPascal mailing list were asked where they stand in regards to programming in Pascal. They were given the following choices to choose from:

Do you plan to continue to use Pascal?
Will use Pascal if I have to write my own compiler.
Will use Pascal until the last compiler vanishes.
Will use Pascal as long as I have access to a robust compiler.
Will use Pascal until MacPascal mailing list and Pascal Central goes away.
Considering switching to another language soon.
Migrating to another language now.
I miss Pascal, but I'm not turning back.
Pascal? Wasn't he some sort of mathematician?
