With one well-placed blow, Think Technologies has knocked aside the critics' major objection to Pascal—that it is too cumbersome. How? By developing an instant Pascal (scheduled for release in June) for the Macintosh. Macintosh Pascal is an interpreted, not a compiled, language. On the surface, using interpreted MacPascal means that you no longer have to wait while a compiler translates your entire Pascal program into machine language just because you changed a few program lines.
- Macworld, May 1984

Superb usage of the whole Mac interface makes this the best way to learn Pascal.

The long story has been covered here marvelously: http://basalgangster.macgui.com/RetroMacComputing/The_Long_View/Entries/...

macintoshpascal_v1_dsk.zip is version 1.0; going by modification dates, it wasn't completed until August. MacPascal.img is an unfinished development version, numbered "7.300," from January 23—one day before the first Mac went on sale.
