It's not my intention to start a language flame war >:-) but
evidently you never heard of delphi and lazarus. It's sad that the 
"pascal" word is automatically associated to a clumsy, outdated language 
by most developers, since, while lazarus is not 100% mature, being 
modelled after delphi it blows away anything else for database and gui 
development (at least under linux, where there's no other comparable 
In fact, having started (real time) pascal development a long time ago, 
followed through to delphi and now using freepascal and lazarus when I 
can, I find the various C/C++/Java/whatever development environments 
really primitive (unsurprisingly, since they're only now trying to do 
what borland already did almost 15 years ago).
