SRC Modula-3

Version 2.11

compiler(->C), run-time, library, documentation

The goal of Modula-3 is to be as simple and safe as it

 can be while meeting the needs of modern systems
 programmers.  Instead of exploring new features, we
 studied the features of the Modula family of languages
 that have proven themselves in practice and tried to
 simplify them into a harmonious language.  We found
 that most of the successful features were aimed at one
 of two main goals: greater robustness, and a simpler,
 more systematic type system.  Modula-3 retains one of
 Modula-2's most successful features, the provision for
 explicit interfaces between modules.  It adds objects
 and classes, exception handling, garbage collection,
 lightweight processes (or threads), and the isolation
 of unsafe features.

conformance: implements the language defined in SPwM3.
