: : is pascal subset of of delphi ,how many differences are there (in percentage) when it comes to procedural programming?and is it a good idea to learn delphi and skip pascal if you are bigginer in pascal or one should i master pascal first competely?
In my experience, I started out with Pascal and then moved to Delphi.
Programming for DOS is quite simple, I have to say you first learn Pascal, then you can go into Delphi. You'll be glad to know about procedures, functions, variables, units and everything... Anyway, it's just a matter of opinions.
...Sorry for my bad english...
