The program is a modernized (OOP, Streams, Delphi extensions) version based on a program by Peter Grogono, who in turn based his program on a Pascal pretty-printer written by Ledgard, Hueras, and Singer. See SIGPLAN Notices, Vol. 12, No. 7, July 1977, pages 101-105, and PP.DOC/HLP. This version of PP developed under Pascal/Z V4.0 or later. Very minor modifications for Turbo Pascal made by Willett Kempton March 1984 and Oct 84. Runs under 8-bit Turbo or 16-bit Turbo. Toad Hall tweak, rewrite for TP 5, 28 Nov 89
