The symbol : (pronounced "colon") is used in Pascal in several ways.

  • It is used to indicate a case statement entry.
  • It separate a function declaration with the function type.
  • It is used to indicate a label.
  • It is used to separate the optional field width specifier from the value for a Write or Writeln parameter.
