Most people who use Pascal in a professional context are using Delphi or Lazarus, as they are MUCH more conducive to developing windowed apps. They also work well as object-oriented systems with support for accessing databases.

ok, does the graph theory has anything to do with the programming competitions, im 17 years old? Please, i need a lot more theories. Also, i have no idea how they make their programs faster. I make a working program but time limit is too high so i fail. Help?


Optimizing your code (in many Pascal compiler) could be done in either one of these:

  • Optimizing your algorithm
  • Ask the compiler to optimize your code (this includes code inlining)
  • Try to work with best data size (in corresponding with CPU register size). For example, if your data can be represented with 32 bit integer in 32bit environment, do not use Int64 data type.
  • You can try to code in assembly language. Many pascal compilers support inline assemly codes.

i know the basics perfectly. I have won many things from competitions, but about the more ranked contests , i didnt do a good job. Thats why i need to learn the advanced things. Nobody wants to show me, my teacher doesnt care, and idk where to go.


Google is your best friend in this case. While of course I don't know everything about optimizing Pascal, but try post your problem here, and I'll try to help.
