There are several flavors of Pascal:
Pascal, TurboPascal, Object-Pascal, Delphi, and Lazarus.
Pascal is probably 40 years old by now. TurboPascal was created by Borland to add features for programming on DOS. Object-Pascal added object-oriented programming concepts to Pascal. Delphi added a set of GUI and database components to Object-Pascal (it was produced by Borland, along with Kylix for Linux, but is now spun off to CodeGear. Support for Kylix was dropped). Lazarus is an open-source copy of Delphi.
There is also a .NET version of Delphi.
