Oberon

(oh -bĕ-ron) The outermost satellite of Uranus, discovered in 1787 by William Herschel. Photographed by Voyager 2, its surface shows some large craters with bright rays emanating from them and with dark patches on their floors, possibly due to eruptions of dirty water. Oberon also has large mountains up to 6 km high and steep curved slopes. See also Uranus' satellites; Table 2, backmatter.

Oberon

(language)
A strongly typed procedural programming language and an operating environment evolved from Modula-2 by Nicklaus Wirth in 1988. Oberon adds type extension (inheritance), extensible record types, multidimensional open arrays, and garbage collection. It eliminates variant records, enumeration types, subranges, lower array indices and for loops.

A successor called Oberon-2 by H. Moessenboeck features a handful of extensions to Oberon including type-bound procedures (methods).

Seneca is a variant of Oberon focussing on numerical programming under development by R. Griesemer in April 1993 (to be renamed).
