Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I don't know pascal or basic, but I have done a bit of java and thats why I mentioned Sun Java and Eclipse. I am sure there are tools available for pascal (do a search in the package manager). For basic, I have heard of a tool called gambas.
Eclipse and Netbeans are IDEs for java (although you can use them for most languages if you install the right plugins). Another IDE you may want to look at if you use GNOME is Anjuta. Its mainly for C/C++ but it supports other languages as well. VIM and EMACS are text editors and many people use them for programming, I personally find using IDEs a lot easier.
Yeehi, you're some sort of masochist (spelled with uppercase m), right?
Pascal, you say. Debug hell, says I.
But, if that's what you want, look into Nemesis Pascal Project.
Also, look into GNU Compiler. There are several language add-ons/modules/pluggins for a wide variety of languates (all command-line).
Beyond that, www.google.com/linux is your friend. Just type in the name of the language of interest, perhaps refine your search with one or two other keywords, and find a wealth of applications (some IDEs).
In re Java, Eclipse and Netbeans have been mentioned. Eclipse has a nice feature (or used to have). After writing a bit of the main, click on Setters and Getters in the appropriate menu, and have code blocks laid out for you; just fill them in.
Netbeans doesn't have that (or didn't a few years ago), but had other features I liked that Eclipse didn't have. I guess it boils down to what you want in an IDE. Both are good.

I have used KDevelop as an IDE. You may like it if you're used to the Microsoft IDE, and supports Pascal and many other languages. You will also need the free Pascal compiler, which you will find here.
