I am interested in the answer to the following question and couldn't
find anything on the net.

Remember the original Turbo Pascal for CP/M compiler from Borland? A
colleague claims it was based on p-code, but my memory tells me
otherwise. As far as I remember, it was the first native-code
compiler for Pascal at the time.

Anyone who remembers facts or who can give me a pointer?
