Why I use Object Pascal https://dubst3pp4.github.io/post/2017-10-03-why-i-use-object-pascal/

first of all, the article does not mention the most important thing - modules. pascal has modules. modules were introduced to c++ just in 2017. modules are why you can have type checks across boundaries of modules.

and pascal units are modules. if they do those loadable on demand, that would be cooler.

Pascal is very strict, so the programmer has to differ between subroutines that return values, in Pascal called functions, and subroutines that does not return something, called procedures. Functions and procedures can also be passed to variables or other functions thanks to procedural types.

well, in pascal successors the function keyword removed, leaving just one procedure, or to be precise PROCEDURE because Wirth decided to make successor languages case sensitive and decrease the number of lexems.

It is possible to overload operators for specific types. With this feature, you have the power to define, let’s say, the result of the addition operation of two or more instances of the same class.

That’s one of the reasons why Wirth doesn’t like modern pascal implementations. The author tries to say - Pascal has all the features, while Wirth was trying to create a minimalistic language by following “less is more” principle.

Pascal is modular

okay, he said this. but did not connect to the type checks.

Pascal has good documentation

indeed, freepascal.org documentation is good, understandable and comprehensive.

well, for me Pascal today is like ‘better c++’, but why would i need better c++ if i have Oberon?

i will use it to write gui applications, or if i need to write something very fast and i don’t have libraries for Oboren and time to create libraries or bindings.

amazing article

I cannot remember all the details. But I remember one peace conference with the French where the Vietminh were not invited. On Sept. 14, when ho signed this basically hollow document, he was heard to murmur, “I am signing my own death warrant.” But to a colleague he concluded, “there is noting else to do but fight.” Ho returned to Vietnam, but then fighting broke out in Haiphong, Mus said, that Ho had been betrayed, adding, “I use the word betrayed with full knowledge of what it means.” After that, Ho never placed faith in negotiations.

At one point, Ho went to Paris for talks again, but the French put him aboard a very slow ship while behind He’s back, they tried to install a French puppet government in his absence.

Does Armenia need it? Experience of 1988-1992 years, when Soviet army performed as grave differ or chastener of Armenian population, does not inspire enthusiasm in Yerevan and Stepanakert. Moreover, that for preserving “balance of interests” Russia, without hiding it’s intentions, promices Baku to return all liberated during the Karabakh war territories surrounding former NKAO, which became the security belt for the second Armenian republic.

Minkin’s article was the best.

When your ally fully depends on you; when he has nowhere else to go; when not only his well-being is in your hands, but also his life… Then the ally like that is called hostage. And if he supports you in anything, that’s very similar to “Stockholm Syndrome”. http://echo.msk.ru/blog/minkin/1535456-echo/

Though I am sure many cities have something similar, found this #wikipedia #article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pulpulak A #pulpulak (Armenian: #պուլպուլակ, pul-pul-uk) is a public #water #fountain common in #Armenia and #Armenian - populated #Nagorno-Karabakh Republic.[2] Pulpulaks are a significant part of the Armenian culture. First pulpulaks appeared in the streets of #Yerevan in #1920 s and over time became extremely popular. Pulpulaks were and are often used by people to appoint meetings and by couples as dating locations
