A constant is a variable that does not change, it has a final value.

Constants are defined in the const section of a Free Pascal program. When a symbol is defined as constant, the Free Pascal compiler can often do some optimizations to make the output code faster or smaller.

Some special Free Pascal constants are:

Logical truth values

data type limits

The mathematical value π is realized as a function in System.Pi, so you may shadow (redefine) it on your own.
