It is also suitable for every person who needs an introduction to programming in Pascal. It is quite a simple but effective introduction to Pascal, in general, and to Turbo Pascal for windows, in particular.
The book focuses on identifying basic Pascal principles in relation to the programming task and applying them to programming scenarios. As a result, a substantial portion of the book is like a manual or a specific guide. Many program examples may be typed into the TPW (Turbo Pascal for Windows) editor and executed. Modification of the examples, and also a lot of experimentation with specific aspects of the code is strongly encouraged. This practice will quicken the learning process and more likely foster an early appreciation and understanding of the material that is presented.
