On the Macintosh, all Pascal development environments allow you to call
functions in C libraries. You should consult your compiler's documentation
for information on how to do this. If you are writing an installable
MathLink program (to plug an external function into Mathematica), you can
use MathLink's mprep tool to create a C program skeleton, but still write
the computational function in Pascal, and call it from the C code. In this
case, you need both C and Pascal compilers (but you don't need to write any
C yourself), and the issue becomes how to call an external Pascal function
from C (also something that all Macintosh C development environments can

I hope this helps.
