Links within this site :-
In May 1998, Borland renamed itself Inprise.
Therefore, URLs (http://, ftp://) referring to their own sites could need a
corresponding change. The newsgroup names have not changed.
It seems to have reverted to being Borland.
(Note : I generally check out URLs before listing them.
Frames-only sites were not included before Oct 1998.
"FNF" means File Not Found)
Please let me know of changed or permanently broken links.
When doing so,
please state the exact defective link as well as the replacement.

The new 3rd edition of "Scientific Pascal" by H.Flanders has been
favourably reviewed somewhere. I asked a Library to borrow it for me,
and got the 2nd (1985) edition. If the 3rd is similar, as good, and
updated, the first half is a good start on the language for the
intelligent reader; the second half presents useful algorithms.
"Borland Pascal Developers Guide", written by Ed Mitchell

Some of my Turbo/Borland Pascal programs, allegedly either useful or
instructive, are in my programs directory
as *.PAS and sometimes *.EXE files. The *.PAS files should contain
sufficient explanation, as comment or at the end.
Use at your own risk - check for viruses - etc.
There is a plain-text 00index.txt file,
and a derived 00index.htm file.
They include HUNT, an enhanced DIR; SHOWER, a pipeable LIST;
CLEAN-TP, a Pascal layout program; INT_TEST, to check PC time/date
services; MJD_DATE/DATEPROX, for date arithmetic, BST, Easter, etc.;
LONGCALC, a RPN vast-integer calculator; and some to illustrate
Some programs are specifically written to
help with DOS Batch files.
At present, I normally apply a fix for the Crt
RTE200 bug; but, if your PC is fast and *.PAS has "uses ... Crt ... ;",
you may not be able to use every *.EXE; RSVP if so. However, where I
can, I avoid using the Borland Crt unit.
Several of the programs will also compile and run in Delphi 3, using
Win 9x console mode (DCC32 -cc ...). There is at present one Delphi-only
AIUI, simtel is mirrored as coast now.
To convert asm..end to Inline(...) form,
reportedly inlin219.zip at Simtel/Garbo.

AFAIR ObjectVision was a window application that Borland put
together to allow non-programmers to develop simple form
oriented data entry and retrieval.
