Turbo Pascal 5.5 on iPhone 4

Apple just approved the DOS emulator iDOS and we were interested to see if some of the old DOS versions of Turbo Pascal from the Borland museum worked. So rotate your head 90 degrees to the right and take a look below (image screen capture straight from iPhone 4 without modification):


Everything except the debugger appears to be working. Without the debugger it'd be a little difficult to use.

@Dude, iDOS has been removed from the Apple App Store because it violated some copyrights. So if you already have it, then download Turbo Pascal 5.5, once downloaded open iTunes and copy the files you downloaded into your app (there's a special pace for apps that can accept files in iTunes), then from within iDOS run the installer.
