Hello, guys!

I'm quite new to programming, but i know some basics. Now i'm stuck, because i have no idea, how could i expand my knowledge. Actually i'm looking for some good tutorials. I know how to make a console application, file input/output, classes and other simple things. Could you recommend me some tutorials? I thought maybe about window applications or maybe even some libraries. What should i learn now?

Because it's simple language and i heard, that it's very flexible, almost everything can be made in it

hi,

 

you should look for "pascal game development" on google, there are a few interesting links, though maybe a bit outdated :

 

http://www.pascalgamedevelopment.com/    (some tutorials about coding games in pascal, there's one about making a worms(c) clone)

http://www.pascalgamer.com/ (a pdf magazine about game development in pascal)

 

http://svgames.pl/en/down  (some games are in pascal with downloadable source codes)

 

also, you might want to learn about the SDL library : http://sourceforge.net/projects/jedi-sdl/

 

by the way, it would be easier for you to learn the basics of C language, which has a syntax quite similar to pascal, then move to C++ later.

 

(but don't give up, if you still want to code games in pascal, it's a fun challenge happy.png )

If you like Pascal, that's fine. But there are other simple languages that are very flexible which have the benefit of being way more popular for game development and thus gives you a much greater support base to engage with.

Pascal is very close to C in syntax. C and C++ are far more popular and supported.

 

Can you even buy a commercial Pascal compiler anymore?blink.png

Probably not, but why would you buy one? Compilers don't have to cost money smile.png (look at gcc, etc..)

Yes it's called Delphi, the free version is called Free Pascal.
