I.e. if your backend doesn't support that feature, you can't really support Pascal either.It is not a side effect of the Pascal compiler. The Pascal and Ada compilers are a side effect of nested functions in GNU C :-)The mere availablity of nested functions in GNU C made it possible to base GNU compilers for Ada and Pascal on the existing GNU C compiler.
