Oberon-2

(language)
A superset of Oberon-1, developed by H. Moessenboeck in 1991 to add object-orientation. Oberon-2 was a redesign of Object Oberon. It included type-bound procedures (equivalent to methods), read-only export of variables and record fields, open array variables, and a "with" statement with variants. It reintroduced the "for" statement.

There is an Oberon-2 Lex scanner and Yacc parser by Stephen J Bevan of Manchester University, UK, based on the one in the Mo"ssenbo"ck and Wirth reference. Version 1.4.

The Oberon programming language, on which our system is based, provides explicit support for extensibility by way of a type extension (subtyping) mechanism.
