A few years ago I worked with some people who
had switched from Mac to Windows development. The impression I got from them
was that they considered writing Mac software a lot more enjoyable than
writing Windows software.
it's going to take more than five people at $300 a head to
motivate MW to write a modern Pascal compiler that builds Mach-O code.
I really liked Pascal. I just like C++ better
and given the state of Pascal tools for the Mac, Pascal would simply not
come close to being my first choice for doing Mac development.
How many people switch from C/C++ to Pascal, if I may ask?
Dunno. What difference does it make?
Isn't it obvious? People tend to switch to something when they find
something better. Are a lot of people switching to Pascal from
If you still use Pascal to write Mac software:
-- You constantly have to convert sample code from C to Pascal.
-- It's harder to get help with your code because almost everyone writing
Mac software today will look at your code and say something to the effect
of, "I'm not sure how you'd do it Pascal, but in C..."
-- Support for Pascal tools for Mac development is almost non-existent. I'm
not aware of any Pascal Mach-O compilers, and I'm not even sure what the
status is with header support for Pascal development.
