the language is not and never has been a "dead end"... while some may think so, 
and we all know that old mantra of "pascal is a teaching language" and its 
associated "reasonings" for not using it outside of educational facilities, we 
also know that this statement and its reasonings are patently false... one can 
easily witness all of the pascal apps and tools written over the years to see 
this ;)
