Are there any books using Pascal (or even Borland's Delphi) to code
numerical analysis algorithms? I realize Pascal is not usually thought
of in this vein (over Fortran, C/C++, etc), but rather as a "learning"
language. That is actually how it would be used here. The person
using it would be a gifted high school student in an AP Computer Class.
Yes, AP Exam uses Pascal for one more year (next year) then moves to
C. Personally, I was hoping for Smaltalk, but that is another story

If you can cite any such sources, please respond to me directly since
I do not read this newsgroup.
