What kind of Pascal dialect is this?

Hi,

I have a Pascal source file which I need to compile, you can find code like this in it:

type x = array [1:2] of integer;
   a = ^b;
   b = record u: x;
        v         : pointer; 
        w,o : a; 
     end;

The file doesn't compile with fpc, what kind of dialect of Pascal may it be?

Thanks for your help!

    it doesn't compile because of - array [1:2] -
    in pascal it would be written as - array [1..2] -

    hope this helps, know its late

    Actual answer is "Microsoft Pascal". It support Object Pascal, thus A is Point to B, which is a Record. However, they supported ":" (colon) as your range separator.
