The symbol for the assignment operator in Pascal is := instead of =.
Pascal uses single quotes for a quoted string e.g. writeln('Hello World!') .
The string concatenation symbol is + in Pascal instead of & in VB.
Whereas VB uses a new line or a colon to separate statements, Pascal uses a semi-colon. A Pascal statement may span lines without the use of a continuation symbol, but a quoted string spanning lines must be split into substrings e.g.
writeln('This is a long quoted string ' + 'spanning two lines.');
Array indices in Pascal must be in square brackets not round brackets as in VB.
The ^ symbol for exponentiation is not available in Pascal. (Pascal uses the Power function in the Math unit).
A one line comment is preceded by // in Pascal and a multi-line comment is enclosed in braces.
