IV. Myths Uncovered Myth 1: C and Pascal Are Basically the Same Language Myth 2: Pascal is Limited in Power Myth 3: Pascal Has Weak String Handling Capabilities Myth 4: Pascal Does Not Support Object Oriented Programming Myth 5: Pascal is Only an Instructional Language Myth 6: Pascal is Not For Serious Programmers http://pascal-central.com/ppl/index.html "Most Pascal compilers on the market support the unextended Pascal standard. Most support an expanded subset of the Extended Pascal standard. Programmers often pass judgment on the Pascal language based on their experience with one particular Pascal dialect, without knowing whether that dialect complies with the standards or how it compares to other available implementations. In several of the dialogs I've been involved in over the past ten years on the USENET newsgroups, negative views of Pascal have been based upon pre-conceptions about the language or bad experiences with a specific compiler. In most cases, these notions were based upon myth rather than fact."
