Fast-Nop1725369dWho the heck does even use fucking Pascal in 2019 anyway? Oh, government folks who havn't updated their competition setup in 30 years.
Which version of TP was that? 3.0 only could generate .com programs with 64k limit on code and data, but with later ones, there was an option to define the memory model. You know, that shit with near and far pointers that nobody is using anymore because x86 segmented real mode is a distant (bad) memory from the past.
fasttime720869dTo be honest, taking part to a coding competition without bothering to know or familiarize with the tools you're going to be using doesn't sound like a smart idea.
fasttime720869dNot sure what you mean. Crappy technology is not an excuse for being uninformed. Especially since all other competitiors had to use it, too.

I was the only one to get an A as I noticed its maths routines was screwed, so had to take that into account.
My banking simulator didn't end up losing 2% of customers balances due to rounding errors. :-)
qwwerty46569d@fasttime It's like attending a Fortran coding competition (yes, that's still being used in production too), but instead of Fortran 2018 you would expect for current applications you get Fortran '66.
If the information which version is going to be used was not provided, then it's organizers fault not the attendant.
