Coded in... what?!

category: general [glöplog]
Since it's a sort of interrest of mine, is there any demos known to be coded in Pascal?
A lot of DOS demos were coded in Pascal with their time critical routines coded in asm.

Afaik many older (pre '95) DOS-demos were done with TurboPascal. Don't know names, though.

d'oh! too slow.

bucketloads. check out the older tpolm stuff for some nice examples. or ft2 for that matter.

Huh, didn't know it was that popular. Nice to know.
I kinda assumed the pre-95 stuff was coded in 100% asm. =)
it's not like there's any real difference between c and pascal. minor syntactical differences and a standard library that uses procedures instead of functions in some silly places (inc comes to mind), and that's about it.

On PC, not. Some of it is 100% asm but ever since the Watcom C++ compiler came around, 100% asm was rather pointless.

for example this was coded in turbo pascal.

oh and the earlier outracks stuff was done in delphi.

Does anyone still use it to make demos today?
winnerdemo was made in delphi iirc :P

Crystal Dream II by Triton was coded in Turbo Pascal with optimizations like inline asm.

Na-napalm/Plastic and possibly other stuff by the same coder is made in delphi

http://www.pouet.net/prod.php?which=15285 the first demo I coded on PC, written in Turbo Pascal, with some inline asm to speed up polyfillers etc.
Not an example of a GOOD demo written i TP, but an example... :D

Thanx for all the linx and info everyone! <3
Ribbon's uryä 64k, pulpina 64k, equalizer bbstro and magic bbstro were coded in Pascal.

To hijack the thread a bit - what other less-usual languages have people written 'serious' demos in (by serious, I mean excluding the "LOL let's make a demo in XYZ" category: Javascript, QBasic, Excel...)? Two that spring to mind are Die Ewigkeit Schmerzt (Python...?) and Rose Shank (weird selfmade bytecode - any other 4Ks doing the same thing?).

las has his own VM bytecode thing

i tried doing a simple demoengine in ruby a while ago but it was really way too slow, sadly...

ikanim "The code is stored as Forth byte code which is smaller than the assembly mnemonics"

thec/outbreak uses a pascal->c compiler for his demos
