my understanding of delphi is that it's borland's new (as of several
years ago) name for their turbo pascal project. pascal never really
seemed to take off on unix. there are a few pascal frontends for g
compiler suite (besides c the gnu compiler supports ada, fortran, java,
and some others) with varying support for different dialects of pascal.
my highschool cs class used turbo pascal 3.x and i had looked into
porting the projects i'd done. none of the pascal compilers at the time
could do the graphics ones.
modula-3 does have some following in the free software world if you're
keen on niklaus wirth's other languages. i think cvssup was written in
modula-3 for instance.
in addition borland is talking about releasing their development tools
for linux. that may or may not include delphi.
