Interesting that you think learning Pascal was a waste of time. The research I've read about (sorry, no references) indicates that Pascal is a significantly better teaching language than C. The gist was that programmers who learn Pascal first do better than those who learn C first, as they actually learn some programming principles rather than diving straight into high-level assembler. There may be benefits from your Pascal experience that you don't even realize.

in thread Writting Perl reserved words in Spanish or other foreign languages
On the actual topic, it's widespread practice to use English reserved words in nearly all programming languages. The French produced a version of COBOL with French reserved words, but then they have an Academy devoted to the purity of the French language. Any other instances?
