Since Modern Pascal is backward compatible with old DOS Pascal dialects, we also include this constant. We evaluate the operating system and set this to true or false. Old CP/M and DOS operating systems appended character 26 (#26) also known as Ctrl-Z (^Z) to the end of a file so older DOS versions knew that it had read the last byte of a file.

These features are included so you will code your application to work on multiple platforms without error.
