Borland Turbo Pascal 1.x (Mac)

Borland Turbo Pascal is a Pascal programming language compiler with an Integrated Development Environment targeted at the hobbyist and entry-level market. There were versions for CP/M and DOS. For a time, it was sold along side their professional "Borland Pascal" product line. Borland also produced a set of "toolbox" libraries along side their earlier versions.

Turbo Pascal for Macintosh was a short lived port of Borland's Pascal product to the Apple Macintosh. It featured a more advanced compiler than the DOS version at the time.

It was an awkward time as Borland had previously been very critical of the under powered and closed Macintosh 128k architecture. While at the same time Apple had not been very supportive of third party development tools.

In practice it would not have aided in porting software from the PC, as typical PC programs contained much DOS/IBM platform specific code.

This software requires at least a Macintosh 512k or Macintosh Plus.

Version 1.1, added support for the Macintosh II.
