Pascal is a general-purpose, high-level language that was originally developed by Niklaus Wirth in the early 1970s. The Pascal language was named for Blaise Pascal, French mathematician and pioneer in computer development. It was developed for teaching programming as a systematic discipline and to develop reliable and efficient programs. Pascal is based on the block structured style of the Algol programming language. Algol-60 is a subset of Pascal. Pascal offers several data types and programming structures. It is easy to understand and maintain the Pascal programs. 
Pascal has grown in popularity in the teaching and academics arena for various reasons: 
  1. Easy to learn.
    
  2. Structured language.
    
  3. It produces transparent, efficient and reliable programs.
    
  4. It can be compiled on a variety of computer platforms.
    
The first appearance of the Pascal Language supporting Object Oriented programming was in 1983 by Apple Computer Company. After that Borland supported Object Oriented programming for their famous Turbo Pascal line. Object Pascal is a general purpose hybrid (structured and object oriented programming) language. It can be used for a vast range of applications, like learning, game development, business applications, Internet applications, communication applications, tools development, and OS kernels. Pascal was developed as a language suitable for teaching programming as a systematic discipline, whose implementations could be both reliable and efficient.
