Ok, now for the most asked question ever...

What are the best books to learn Pascal? 

Are there any good free ones online?

[…] What are the best books to learn Pascal? […]
I wouldn't care too much about that question. You learn programming in any imperative, structured, object-oriented programming language at hand. At some point you do a transition from one to another language, i.e. to Pascal. The rest is “just” studying the reference manual.

My point is, there a lots of tutorials/introductions for Pascal, but I doubt there's any fair and recent OOP-introduction (using Pascal), that'll explain all the principles you need. Since e.g. polymorphism's nothing unique to Pascal, I say you can learn and practice it in any language you'd like, and eventually transfer your knowledge (with consulting the reference manual).
Yours Sincerely

Thank you for the links.  These are pure gold... Actually better than what I could have bought at Amazon.
