As far as learning Pascal, which IS the best way to learn programming as that's what Pascal was designed for, go to the bookstore and find a tutorial book on Pascal Programming. Start out on page 1 and work your way through each page. Pascal is easy enough to learn you'll soon have the hang of it.
: : Can anyone help me with programming in Pascal? I am a new student to this and would appreciate any help I could get. I would also like to know where I could get a compiler from, if anyone had one for free or rather cheap.
: Hmm looks like I ignored this thread for too long...I didnt realize it had gotten so far as to discuss the distribution of copyrighted programs.
