: Hi all
: I have a program that runs like Dos which I believe was written in Pascal many years ago which I would like to bring up to date and look pretty!!
: I normally do my programming in Visual Basic so can find my way around a programming language but understand Delphi is more like a form of Visual Pascal (I may be wrong)which would lend itself to the conversion better than VB.
: Does anyone know of a list of equivalent commands converting Pascal to Delphi that would give me a head start.
: Many thanks
: Rob

Delphi is better suited for this conversion than VB, because Delphi code is written in Borland's "Object Pascal".

Which version/type of Pascal is it, and from which company? If it's Borland, a lot of Pascal statements are also understood by Delphi.

The old Pascal versions don't know about windows, so you'll have to rewrite most "displaying" routines to show results in a Delphi "form" (a window). Or maybe you only want text input and text results as console output in in a "DOS-window"?

If you give me some feedback, I'll see what we can do ;)

Greetings, Albert
