I recently had a similar problem and was pointed to a program called
p2c (pascal to c translator).  I am sure that the opposite facility
is also covered (c to pascal).  I got the program at wuarchive.wustl.edu,
but it is available in many locations -- check archie.  

The only problem I have had with the translator is that after the code 
is translated and is then compiled, C tries to link in some pascal 
functions which are not there -- specifically, subroutines dealing with 
set functions.  If anyone can tell me what to do about this (short of 
writing my own substitute functions, which is less than satisfactory, 
since I am not sure exactly how Pascal implements them), I would 
appreciate it.
