Dear Fellow Pascal Users,

Please let me try to help by repeating the central information about
the Pascal newsgroups' organization. This information is an edited
rendition from our

165966 Jan 8 2000 ftp://garbo.uwasa.fi/pc/link/tsfaqp.zip
tsfaqp.zip Common Turbo Pascal Questions and Timo's answers, linked

I think it will be advisable that I post this information
automatically once a week to all the pascal newsgroups to help to
keep us organized.

76. *****

Q: What are the current Pascal newsgroups on the Usenet news?

A: The following new Pascal discussion newsgroups were created June
12, 1995 to replace the old comp.lang.pascal. The new Delphi
newsgroups were first created around July 10, 1995. Further Delphi
newsgroups were added in April 1996.

A special note about Delphi postings. Please use the delphi
newsgroups for the Delphi related postings. In particular, the
newsgroup comp.lang.pascal.borland is _NOT_ for Delphi related
subjects!

A second special note. Please avoid crossposting between the
newsgroups. In particular do not crosspost between the old and the
new newsgroups. It slows the transition to the new system. (This
automatic posting breaches the general non-crossposting tenet only
because it is relevant information about the arrangements of all the
newsgroups involved.)

CURRENT:
news:comp.lang.pascal.ansi-iso Pascal according to ANSI and ISO standards.
news:comp.lang.pascal.borland Borland's Pascal incl. Turbo Pascal (not Delphi!)
news:comp.lang.pascal.mac Macintosh based Pascals.
news:comp.lang.pascal.misc Pascal in general and ungrouped Pascals.

news:comp.lang.pascal.delphi.advocacy Contentious issues related to Delphi.
news:comp.lang.pascal.delphi.announce Delphi related announcements. (Moderated)
news:comp.lang.pascal.delphi.components.misc General component issues.
news:comp.lang.pascal.delphi.components.usage Using pre-written components.
news:comp.lang.pascal.delphi.components.writing Writing Delphi components.
news:comp.lang.pascal.delphi.databases Database aspects of Borland Delphi.
news:comp.lang.pascal.delphi.misc General issues with Borland Delphi.
news:comp.sources.delphi Delphi and ObjectPascal source code. (Moderated)

There also are the following newsgroups of interest
news:borland.public.announce
news:borland.public.turbopascal
which are not as widely circulated on Usenet so you may need to
connect to the news host forums.borland.com for them. E.g.
news://forums.borland.com/borland.public.turbopascal
For other, less circulated, often local Pascal newsgroups see
grep pascal ~/.newsrc
and/or
http://www.uwasa.fi/~ts/http/newsgrps.html

RELATED of potential interest:
news:comp.os.msdos.programmer.turbovision Borland's text application libraries

OLD: Please cease using!
comp.lang.pascal Discussion about Pascal.
comp.lang.pascal.delphi.components Writing components in Borland Delphi.

Please duly observe the good netiquette in the Pascal newsgroups.
For example, please note that, while posting source code snippets of
reasonable length is welcome, you should not post binaries or binary
attachments (uuencoded, mimed, base64:d, HTML, multi-part,
word-processor or similar files) to these newsgroups. If you have
such material to show or share please make it available at an FTP or
WWW location and post only the pointer. In the Pascal newsgroups
only use straight ASCII text.

For more historical information about the Pascal newsgroups please see

52703 Jun 14 1995 ftp://garbo.uwasa.fi/pc/doc-net/pasgroup.zip
pasgroup.zip Information about the comp.lang.pascal.* newsgroups

If you need more information about newsgroups in general please see
http://www.uwasa.fi/~ts/http/news.html#info

If your site is not getting the new Pascal newsgroups, please
contact your own site's newsmaster about the situation.

All the best, Timo
