    Everything that can be accomplished in C can be accomplished in Pascal, bar none. Everything that can be accomplished in Pascal can be accomplished in C, bar none. There are just different ways of doing things. It's ridiculously easy to convert code from one to the other, that's how similar in execution they are.

    The most egregious argument I've heard that C is superior to Pascal is that "C generates better machine code." If anything, it can be demonstrated that the opposite is true. Processors designed to run Pascal code actually exist, processors designed to run C code do not.

    I hadn't heard of e-Prolog, but Prolog is essentially just a natural language programming language used for AI type applications. Not sure it's used in much anymore, except as part of IBM's Watson.

    Yeah I'm unsure how far that programme goes in terms of Compatibility between CP/M systems. It's also Public Domain, so it may only be a small implementation of Prolog. In terms of AI type applications, would that include an Eliza based programme?
