Apple's MPW Pascal
The Macintosh Programmer's Workshop Golden Master, is a free download. The Pascal compiler is no longer included in MPW because it only produces 68k code.
If you have a 68k Mac, you can still download MPW Pascal
separately. The file is called "Pascal.bin", and when it unstuffs,it
is called "MPW
Pascal". You change this filename to just "Pascal", and put it in the "tools" folder in your MPW folder. If you type "Help Pascal" into the MPW worksheet, a list of compiler directives comes up. There is more information with example programs here:
Most are for the CodeWarrior compiler and some are for Think
Pascal. If you go through the above link, you can download the
Freeware Think Pascal 4.5 alpha. The direct link is;
You can only contemplate using MPW if you have a large HD. Think
Pascal is a good one to learn on, but it only produces 68k code. It
is a good idea to learn MPW, even if you only have a 68k Mac, because
your projects can subsequently be compiled to RISC very easily.
The current MPW distribution may need a bit of work to set it up
to use Pascal. It seemed that in the version I downloaded that all
the Pascal "includes" were there. A Reference Manual for MPW Pascal
does exist, but only in printed form. It is not available for
download anywhere as far as I know.
