Pascal is a procedural language.  So a translator will never be able to produce object oriented C++ code if that is what you want.  The best you can hope for is procedural code which is essentially C.  If you compile the C generated by p2c or ptoc with a C++ compiler you will get all the benefits of type checking that you would with C++ procedural code.  The only difference between procedural C code and procedural C++ code would be the use of streams instead of C I/O statements anyway. I suggest you use p2c of ptoc and if you must change the I/O statements to use streams instead.  Note that by doing this you will be slowing down your prog.  If you want an object oriented implementation of your program you will have to redesign your program.  No current program can convert a procedural design into object oriented design.
