howdy all-

does anyone know where my school could obtain the BASIC and PASCAl
programming languages for free? i heard a rumor that there are freeware
or shareware versions of this on the 'net.

it seems our school district bought $58,000 worth of powermacs, but
somehow "*forgot*" that they would need some software for our computer
science classes. and naturally, we have no money budgeted for software,
so we'll just have to wait until next year.

we either use pencil and paper or our old IBM PS/2 286 machines. (pencil
and paper compiles faster, by the way :-)

and you thought JAVA was the only language that runs on a virtual

any ideas?

see ya soon
