Turbo Pascal 7.0 Guide
Using This Guide
The Pascal programming language was designed to help teach structured programming methods. It is a good place to start if you have never programmed before. Other programming environments can be more stimulating to work with (eg Visual Basic) but, by learning Pascal first, you show that you are serious about learning to program. In particular, Pascal is very unforgiving if you don't follow its syntax rules carefully. This, as you well know, is good for you.
