Description
Antique Software: Turbo Pascal version 5.5
Ship date: 2-May-1989

Turbo Pascal 5.5, the world-standard Pascal compiler, adds Object-Oriented Programming. Combining the simplicity of Apple's Object Pascal language with the power and efficiency of C++ to create Turbo Pascal 5.5, the object-oriented programming language for the rest of us. Turbo Pascal 5.5 came in two versions: Turbo Pascal (the base product), and Turbo Pascal Professional (included Turbo Assembler and Turbo Debugger).

How to Download Turbo Pascal 5.5
Click to download the software. When you are finished downloading the software, use your favorite zip utility (like PKZIP or WinZip) to decompress the zip file to a folder on your hard drive. Turbo Pascal 5.5 shipped on 2 floppy disks. Make sure you chose the decompression software's option to preserve folder names (-d for pkunzip, look for the check box option for winzip). You can make a 2-disk floppy set or you can install Turbo Pascal 5.5 direct from your hard drive.

These historical files are provided to the Borland community free of charge. They may be downloaded and used "as is" for personal use only. No developer support is provided. Each individual product contains copyright notices that are still in force. These files may not be made available via the Internet or any hard copy media (e.g. diskette, CDROM). We make no claims about Year 2000 compatibility for our antique software. If you have technical questions, you should ask the questions on our Internet newsgroups (there may be someone who remembers these old tools).

Turbo Pascal 5.5 Object-Oriented Programming Guide

Community member Bill Meyer was kind enough to scan in and convert the first two chapters of the TP 5.5 Object Oriented-Programming Chapter guide into a PDF. He has done a fantastic job with it. You can view (or download, it's 2.58MB) the Introduction and "All About OOP" chapters of the guide from http://dn.codegear.com/article/images/20803/TP_55_OOP_Guide.pdf. While it's old, the OOP chapter still does a good job of covering the concepts of Object-Oriented Programming.

Turbo Pascal 5.5 Readme File
The following is the Readme file that came with Turbo Pascal 5.5. Please notice that any mention of support, references to phone numbers or addresses are here for historical purposes. Since this is antique software, there is no developer support for this product. If you have questions, you should ask them on our Internet newsgroups. You might find an old timer who still remembers using this version of Turbo Pascal.

WELCOME TO TURBO PASCAL 5.5
---------------------------

This README file contains important, last minute information
about Turbo Pascal 5.5. The HELPME!.DOC file also answers many
common Technical Support questions.


TABLE OF CONTENTS
-----------------

1. Turbo Debugger
2. Important Notes & Additions
3. Tour - New introduction to the IDE
4. Corrections to the manual
5. Turbo Pascal 5.5 and the Toolboxes
6. Listing of Files on the Disks



1. TURBO DEBUGGER
-----------------
Turbo Debugger has been upgraded to version 1.5 to support
Turbo Pascal 5.5's object-oriented extensions. You can debug
both 5.0 and 5.5 programs with the new release of TD (1.5). If
you have TD 1.0, you can still debug any TP 5.5 programs that
do not use objects.

If you don't already have Turbo Debugger 1.5, call Customer
Service for information about upgrading: (408) 438-5300.


2. IMPORTANT NOTES & ADDITIONS
------------------------------

o REBUILD TPUs. Remember to rebuild your old units with version
5.5 or you'll get an error 72 (Unit file format error) when you
try to use that unit. To rebuild an entire program from the
Integrated Development Environment, load the main program into
the editor and select the COMPILE/BUILD menu command. If you
are using the command-line compiler, type:

tpc /b ProgramName

You'll need to have all source code available in the logged
directory or in the OPTIONSDIRECTORYUNIT DIRECTORY path.

o COMPILER ERROR MESSAGES. The following compiler error
messages have been added or modified:

99 File and procedure types are not allowed here
146 File access denied

o RUN-TIME ERROR MESSAGE. The following new run-time error
message will occur if range-checking is on {$R+} and a call is
made to an object's virtual method when that object has not yet
been initialized via a constructor call (see Page 37 in the
Object-Oriented Programming Guide for more information):

210 Object not initialized


3. TOUR - NEW INTRODUCTION TO THE IDE
-------------------------------------

Version 5.5 now includes Tour, an online introduction to the
Integrated Development Environment (IDE). If you are new to
Turbo Pascal, spending 15 minutes with Tour will get you up to
speed in the IDE.


4. CORRECTIONS TO THE OOP GUIDE
-------------------------------

o Page 3: The reference to using TINST at the bottom of the page
should indicate Page 308 of the User's Guide.

o Page 94: To perform more complete error checking in the
code fragment at the top of the page, insert a conditional
statement immediately after the OverInitEMS call:

...
OvrInitEMS;
if (OvrResult = OvrOK) then
begin
SaveOvrRead := OvrReadBuf; { Save EMS default }
OvrReadBuf := MyOvrRead; { Install ours }
UsingEMS := true;
end;

o Page 114 - 118: Corrections or Additions to the Index

extensibility 46,78
Fail 107
with (reserved word)
statement 13,22,78,82
implicit 17


5. TURBO PASCAL 5.5 AND THE TOOLBOXES
-------------------------------------

The source code from version 4.0 of all Turbo Pascal toolboxes
(including the Turbo Pascal Tutor) is fully compatible with 5.5.
