Pascal is an imperative language from the Wirthian family created in 1969. It lives on in compilers like Free Pascal and Delphi.

Pascal is a purely procedural language and includes control statements with reserved words such as if, then, else, while, for, and so on. However, Pascal also has many data structuring facilities and other abstractions not included in ALGOL 60 like type definitions, records, pointers, enumerations, and sets.
