Pascal

High-level programming language developed by Niklaus Wirth in 1971 that is named after the Mathematician Blaise Pascal. Below is an example of a Pascal program that prints Hello World!.

program Hello;
begin
Write('Hello world');
end.

After the above has been entered into a file, save the file as hello.pas and compile the program before it can be ran.
