Opening PAS files

Did your computer fail to open a PAS file? We explain what PAS files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your PAS files.

What is a PAS file?

Files that contain the .pas file extension are most commonly associated with the Pascal programming language. The Pascal language is a procedural programming language that was published in 1970. It has been influential in the development of many other programming languages seen today.

The PAS files that are associated with Pascal contain the source codes for a program that has been written in the Pascal language. These PAS files can be compiled to create an executable program.

Borland Delphi is one of the most known programming environments using the Pascal programming language. There are free IDEs available like FreePascal, although they have their own limitations.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
