Why pascal is more suited to a structured program?

Surya said: (Mar 26, 2011)  
From this language the c features are extracted, specially structure methods.

Sunil said: (Jul 15, 2011)  
As c is also structure language so ans is pascal.

Manivannan said: (Aug 6, 2011)  
Imports allows including functions from external modules, with no headers required as in C.

Hari Prasad said: (Aug 17, 2011)  
Please tell me direct ans why pascal is more suited to a structured program with out comparing with C language.

Indu said: (Aug 25, 2011)  
Because of it is written in understandable english language.

Bhargavi said: (Sep 24, 2011)  
It extracted specially structured languages so pascal is suited to a structured program.

Shalini Jaiswal said: (Oct 29, 2011)  
This language encourage the programmers to write good programs so the answer is pascal.

Gourav said: (Nov 10, 2011)  
Pascal is oldest language. so it well structured.

Deepak said: (Nov 19, 2011)  
Why pascal is more sutaible language?

Dimple said: (Dec 7, 2011)  
Pascal has good features.

Prerna said: (Dec 12, 2011)  
What is the main difference between Pascal and C?

Rathika.B said: (Jan 15, 2012)  
Pascal language is came before C lang.

SO, before C lang, pascal is also a structured lang.

In given ans, if they given C then we give an preference to C .

Ramesh K said: (Feb 2, 2012)  
Structured programming languages include: ALGOL, Pascal, PL/I and Ada so PL/I, PASCAL are both programming language. Please suggest my query?

Naresh Kasukurthy said: (Apr 10, 2012)  
C extends from pascal so pascal also a structured language.

Durga said: (Apr 13, 2012)  
Tell me what is a structured program? how it looks like?

Zamani said: (Apr 21, 2012)  
Because it was developed to teach progamming by emphasizing the structured programm apraoch.

Sandeep said: (May 12, 2012)  
Actually pascal is programming approach language.

Sassy said: (May 20, 2012)  
You ave to now how pascal works before doing the other programs and it is more suitable of a program that is structured.

Vicky said: (Jul 19, 2012)  
C is next version of pascal so it is more structured.

Priyanka said: (Aug 18, 2012)  
When pascal is more suitable then why c is developed. I hope PL/1 is a right answer.

Robin Tyagi said: (Aug 31, 2012)  
Pascal is Algol based language and includes many constructs of Algol. Algol 60 is a subset of Pascal. Pascal offers several data types and programming structures. It is easy to understand and maintain the Pascal programs.

Pabitra Mohan Sethy said: (Nov 22, 2012)  
It pascal is more suitable for program why we use vb or c, c++.

Faiz said: (Dec 16, 2012)  
PASCAL is the right answer.

Dinesh K. Jain said: (Mar 6, 2013)  
Pascal is more suited to a structured program, because Pascal was designed (in 1970 by Nicklaus) to force programmers for a structured programming style. Pascal has successors, Modula and Oberon, which add module and access to system resources.

PL/I ("Programming Language One", pronounced pee-el-wun) is a procedural, imperative computer programming language designed for scientific, engineering, business and systems programming applications. It has been used by various academic, commercial and industrial organizations since it was introduced in the 1960s, and continues to be actively used as of 2011

Fortran (previously FORTRAN) is a general-purpose, imperative programming language that is especially suited to numeric computation and scientific computing. Originally developed by IBM at their campus in south San Jose, California in the 1950s for scientific and engineering applications, Fortran came to dominate this area of programming early on and has been in continual use for over half a century in computationally intensive areas such as numerical weather prediction, finite element analysis, computational fluid dynamics, computational physics and computational chemistry. It is one of the most popular languages in the area of high-performance computing and is the language used for programs that benchmark and rank the world's fastest supercomputers.

BASIC is a family of general-purpose, high-level programming languages whose design philosophy emphasizes ease of use; the name is an acronym from Beginner's All-purpose Symbolic Instruction Code.

Pascal is an influential imperative and procedural programming language, designed in 1968"1969 and published in 1970 by Niklaus Wirth as a small and efficient language intended to encourage good programming practices using structured programming and data structuring.

But Fortran (the name is a blend derived from The IBM Mathematical Formula Translating System) encompasses a lineage of versions, each of which evolved to add extensions to the language while usually retaining compatibility with previous versions. Successive versions have added support for structured programming and processing of character-based data (FORTRAN 77), array programming, modular programming and generic programming (Fortran 90), high performance Fortran (Fortran 95), object-oriented programming (Fortran 2003) and concurrent programming (Fortran 2008).

The clock interrupt handle on a computer requires 2 msec per clock tick. The clock runs at 60Hz. What percent is devoted to the clock ?

Raj said: (Jun 13, 2013)  
PASCAL is sturucture Programming Language.

Mani said: (Jul 31, 2013)  
Pascal has and, or, and mod where C uses &&, ||, and %.
c is case sensitive but pascal is not.

Pascal has:

if cond then stmt else stmt
while cond do stmt
repeat stmt until cond
for id := expr to expr do stmt and for id := expr downto expr do stmt
case expr of expr : stmt; ... expr : stmt; else: stmt; end

C has:

if (cond) stmt else stmt
while (cond) stmt
do stmt while (cond)
for (expr; cond; expr) stmt
switch (expr) { case expr : stmt; ... case expr : stmt; default: stmt }

Please tell me direct answer why pascal is more suited to a structured program with out comparing with C language.

Shridhar said: (Feb 18, 2014)  
Why pascal is the one?

We have C++ for structured pgm.

Tluangtea said: (May 23, 2014)  
What is the full form of PASCAL?

Kamran Basit said: (Jun 18, 2014)  
Pascal is the correct answer because it was the only structured HLL before C language.

Kokila said: (Jul 2, 2014)  
C is structural language. What is mean by structural?

Ja Nani said: (Jul 29, 2014)  
Now only I know about basics of computer.

Deepanwita Pradhan said: (Jul 31, 2014)  
What is the full form of pascal? And, why please tell me exact answer.

PASCAL was named in honor of the French mathematician and philosopher "Blaise Pascal".

Susmitha said: (Aug 30, 2014)  
Pascal is structured programing.

Sagar said: (Sep 3, 2014)  
BASIC is a one type of symbolic instruction code language, FORTRAN is formula translation language so its not suitable for structured program.

Badmus Mohammed Basir said: (Sep 4, 2014)  
Pascal was originally designed for structured programming by eliminating the use of goto command.

Priya said: (Sep 10, 2014)  
Pascal is a procedural programming language not structured.

Sanny said: (Sep 27, 2014)  
Pascal and C both structured language because both has a proper syntax i.e. structure and of course @Priya both are procedural language, both has functions i.e. procedures.

Hema said: (Oct 9, 2014)  
Pascal is easy to understand.

Raheel said: (Nov 17, 2014)  
Why ? I don't understand.

Ruthra said: (Dec 12, 2014)  
Pascal extracted some features in C language.

Prathiba said: (Jan 8, 2015)  
Pascal is more suited for structured program because it has good features, since it is the oldest method it is well structured and has a proper syntax.

Sree said: (Mar 25, 2015)  
Why that is pascal?

Naveed said: (May 28, 2015)

Andrew said: (Sep 19, 2015)  
Pascal is very simple Language and is a fist language for Structured Program.

Nandlal Chavhan said: (Sep 25, 2015)  
Pascal was originally developed for the development of well structured and well organized programs. Support structured programming means This is accomplished through the use of subprograms called procedures and functions.

Samuel said: (Nov 24, 2016)  
Pascal was formed for structured programming.

Jane Nnamdi said: (Dec 27, 2016)  
Why is pascal more suited to a structured program?

Shewangizaw Bogale said: (Feb 19, 2017)  
Structured programming (modular programming) is a subset of procedural programming that enforces a logical structure on the program being written to make it more efficient and easier to understand and modify. Ex : PASCAL, Java, ALGOL.

The correct answer is pascal. I agree.

Omokpo Celestine Nigeria said: (Mar 13, 2017)

A structured programming language is one that captures a task's logic in a smooth fashion similar to natural reasoning and creates a program with a structure that pursues ease of understanding.

Taniya Sahu said: (Oct 24, 2017)
