30 years of Turbo Pascal: Integrated Approach Revolutionized Software Development (via: heise Developer)

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/11/21

Thanks for the German heise Developer people that reminded me yestarday was a special birthday of Turbo Pascal: 30 Jahre Turbo Pascal: Integrierter Ansatz revolutionierte die Softwareentwicklung | heise Developer.

The Google Translation into English isn’t bad at all.

    There is a mistake about “Borland Pascal”, “Turbo Pascal” and “Turbo Pascal for Windows”. When version 7 was realeased, Borland made two SKUs. One was TurboPascal 7, which only included the standard DOS compiler, although it had two IDEs, one running with a DOS extender and one without. Borland Pascal 7 included the standard DOS compiler, one able to target a DOS extender (and with “DLL” support), and TurboPascal for Windows – which IIRC was released earlier as a standalone product.

      That is totally true, thanks for that additional information.

      The release order was like this:

      – Turbo Pascal 6
      – Turbo Pascal for Windows 1.0
      – update for Turbo Pascal for Windows 1.0 (I’m not sure if that update had a different version number)
      – Turbo Pascal for Windows 1.5
      – Turbo Pascal 7.0 with only the DOS stuff and no DPMI support
      – Borland Pascal 7.0 with DOS, DPMI (DOS Extender) and Windows support
      – Turbo Pascal 7.01 and Borland Pascal 7.01
