Downloadable Disk Images - Programs on the "Pascal" disk
Pascal was a popular language for teaching structured programming in the 1970s and early 1980s. Academics favoured it because it was "elegant" and students couldn't get away with writing spaghetti code, as they could with BASIC.
Here are a couple of programs for the TRS-80 and clones.
|Name (and filename)||Description||What to type at the dos prompt|

ascii/cmd, text/cmd, authcode/cmd, author/src, cointoss/src, create/src, list/dat, index/dat, gotoxy/src, graphic/src, init/cmd, mailist/src, prime/src, random/src, sort/src, ctrlkey/cmd, hanoi/src, hanoi/pas, hanoi/cmd
|This was one of the best implementations of the language on this type of computer. Easy to use, with a menu driven interface. By Phels Gates, (1981). Distributed by New Classics Software.||pascal|
Pascal v1.0 (tpascal/l2)
run/cmd (used to load the program)
|Tandy's version of Pascal. This is a Level 2 version designed originally to run off cassette. It's been converted so it can be loaded from disk. The auxiliary program run/cmd must be used to load it. Limited, but one of the few examples available for cassette systems.||run tpascal/l2|
