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.
