Delphi is a form of Object Pascal an Object orientated extension of Niklaus Wirth's Pascal Programming language, (see Pascal).

I used to program in Delphi for a living but then I was able to move on to my favourite Language C++, though that said I did like Delphi, which is far more than a language but also a IDE and a Visual GUI Builder and so much more, but as I moved on to C++Builder I didn't lose any of that. now as I have moved to Linux I use Anjuta for my main IDE/Builder which I like even better and when I want some Delphi stuff I use Lazarus, (see also)
