I think Pascal is an excellent language, especially for doing XML (it's
certainly my favourite).
Pascal has powerful string handling capabilities that are not found in C or
assembler. Oh yes, java is of course roughly the same but that came a lot
later and does things in a completely different (pcode) way.
Anyway... it's obvious that there are thought police about trying to stop all
evil acts of individuality and personal reflection... we must return to being
the repetitive corporate drones with the suits and ties.. and making the xml
systems that please the boss but makes the customer sigh.....
