The programming language Pascal is assessed in the light of `reliable programming' and with the background of five years of experience with the language. Some features are selected to point out remaining problems, either inherent or specific, from which some guidelines for the design of choice of languages for reliable programming are derived. Among the discussed features are the concept of data type, the sequential file structure and the type union.
