 The most successful Pascal dialect has been Borland's TurboPascal. There are two OpenSource Pascal compilers for [Linux]: 
 * [GNU Pascal |] 
-* [Free Pascal |] 
+* [Free Pascal |]. __Note__ this is written in Pascal, so you need an existing Free Pascal binary to build the source!  
 Free Pascal tends more towards TurboPascal compatibility. 
 The online book [Pascal Implementation: A Book and Sources |] walks you through the source code to the original Pascal compiler (implemented in Pascal as a RecursiveDescentParser). It's educational to read just as an extended critique of a non-trivial program.
