  • Abstract:
    The need for developing a style of writing Pascal programs to allow reasonable rehosting success prompted a study on Pascal style. Presented is a subset of guidelines developed from that research, plus some philosophy behind proper interpretation and enforcement of those guidelines. Styling is defined for the programming areas of: description using comments, expression with identifier names and conditionals, and the constructs of block, decision, repetition, and qualification. Enforcement of style and using it in a practical setting are also discussed.
