     PASCAL(1)                                               PASCAL(1)

          pascal - language interpreter

          pascal [ options ] [ -i name ... ] [ name.p ] [ obj [ argu-
          ment ... ] ]

          pmerge name.p ...

          Pascal translates Pascal source programs to interpretable
          form, executes them, or both.  Under option -c the programs
          are translated but not executed.  The translated code
          appears in file `obj'.  Under option -x pascal interprets
          the previously translated code in file obj (default `obj').
          Arguments are made available through the built-ins `argc'
          and `argv'.

          Options is a string chosen from the following letters:

          c    Translate only.  This option must be first if it
               appears at all.  It is inconsistent with -x.

          b    Buffer the runtime file `output'.

          l    Make a program listing during translation.

          n    List each included file on a new page with a banner

          p    Suppress the post-mortem control flow backtrace if an
               error occurs; override execution limit of 500,000

          s    Accept standard Pascal only; non-standard constructs
               cause warning diagnostics.

          t    Suppress runtime tests of subrange variables and treat
               assert statements as comments.

          u    Card image mode; only the first 72 characters of input
               lines are used.

          w    Suppress warning diagnostics.

          x    Execute only.  If this option appears, it must be
               first.  It is inconsistent with the -c option.

          z    Cause the interpreter to gather profiling data for
               later analysis by pxp(1).

          Option -i causes the named procedures and include files to
          be listed.

          Pmerge combines the named source files into a singlesource
          files  on the standard output.

          The first character of an error message indicates its class:

               E    Fatal error; no code will be generated.
               e    Non-fatal error.
               w    Warning - a potential problem.
               s    Warning - nonstandard Pascal construct.

          The keyword `packed' is recognized but has no effect.
          Diagnostics relating to the last procedure in an included
          file may appear after the beginning of the listing of the
