We often heard from some developers who say Pascal is a toy language. Pascal is made only to teach you but not used for real programming applications. This is how much truth you can check by the words said by Niklaus himself “At times, it has been asserted that Pascal was planned as a language used for teaching. This is not wrong but you can’t ignore that its purpose is not only teaching. In fact, I don’t believe the use of tools and formalisms in teaching that is too inadequate for any tasks”. In short, we can say that it is easy to learn but can’t title it that it is designed only for teaching.
