SUN-3 RELEASE OF MODULA-2 NOW READY, SAYS OREGON SOFTWARE

By CBR Staff Writer

Oregon Software, Portland, Oregon, says it has now completed field trials of its Modula-2 compiler for the Sun-3 workstation. Repeating the oft-forecast opinion that Modula-2 would move away from its current academic setting towards more general business and industrial use, Oregon, which made its name developing Pascal compilers, said its own version was based on the third edition of Dr Niklaus Wirth’s Programming in Modula-2 text, with Oregon extensions in areas such as packed records, packed arrays, and Forward references. Oregon Modula-2 programs can also call Pascal, C, C++, and assembler routines so that users can take advantage of existing software libraries, and has user controllable, run-time error handling and an interactive, source level debugger. Although the initial release is for the Sun-3, future versions scheduled include VAX/VMS/Ultrix/BSD and Intel iAPX86/MS-DOS/Xenix (in native and cross-compiler versions). The Oregon Modula-2 Sun-3 compiler is $2,100 for a single-user licence. Network pricing is also available.
