language A high-level programming language designed by
Niklaus Wirth at ETH in 1978. It is a derivative of
Pascal with well-defined interfaces between modules, and
facilities for parallel computation. Modula-2 was developed
as the system language for the Lilith workstation.
The central concept is the module which may be used to
encapsulate a set of related subprograms and data structures,
and restrict their visibility from other portions of the
program. Each module has a definition part giving the
interface, and an implementation part.
