Later pascal standards supported conformant array parameters. And several 
extended pascal compilers provided dynamic arrays.

In Go multidimensional arrays are not well supported. Try this:

var x [5][6]int
y := x[:2][:3]
fmt.Printf("%v\n", y)

It is what it is. Get used to it if you want/have to use Go! Apart from its 
concurrency features it is a pretty boring language but it is surprisingly easy 
to write code in it.
