  • Drechsler, K. H. and M. P. Stadel "The Pascal-XT code generator." view details Abstract: This paper describes the code generator concept of the Siemens Pascal-XT compilers. Pascal-XT (Pascal eXTended) is an extension of ISO-Pascal. The most important extensions are a package concept with a separate compilation facility, private access types, static expressions in constant and type definitions, aggregates, exception handling, representation specifications for record types, and inline procedures and functions. Most of these extensions are very similar to the corresponding features of the Ada programming language. There exists a family of Pascal-XT compilers for several Siemens target machines ranging from personal computers through process control computers to main frames. Currently, an automatically vectorizing Pascal-XT compiler for the vector processors of the VP series is being developed.

  • Donaho, J. "A comparison of extended Pascal and Ada." view details Abstract: When Ada was first released almost ten years ago, it was widely viewed as the successor to Pascal. At about the same time, work began on the language that was to become Extended Pascal. While it is a complete new language, rather than just a standardized set of extensions, it is upwardly compatible with Classic Pascal. This paper is a preliminary evaluation of the relative merits of Extended Pascal and Ada. Given that they owe so much to their common ancestor, the inquiry is limited to areas where both languages have added a feature, but they have done it in different ways. It is by no means a complete comparison of the two languages; rather, it is an attempt to highlight the contrasts.

  • Joslin, D. A. "Extended Pascal?numerical features" pp77-80 view details Abstract: The Extended Pascal standard [i], drafted by the Joint X3J9/IEEE-770 Pascal Standards Committee (JPC) in conjunction with the ISO Pascal working group (ISO/IEC JTCi/SC22/WG2), completed its second public comment period at the end of 1988. The comments received have been considered by JPC and the IS0 group, and the standard is now almost certainly in its final form.
    Earlier papers by this author [2,3] described the main features of the standard by means of illustrative examples. This is now the first in an occasional series of articles, by this author and other JPC & WG2 members, describing in more detail various extensions which have been made to the Pascal language; rationale is given where appropriate.
    This paper describes the predefined type COMPLEX, the range and precision of type REAL, and the EXPONENTIATION operators. DOI
