m2

A Modula-2 compiler for VAX and MIPS. A Pascal compiler for VAX is also included. The Pascal compiler accepts a language that is almost identical to Berkeley Pascal. It was originally designed and built by Michael L. Powell in 1984. Joel McCormack made it faster, fixed lots of bugs, and swiped/wrote a User's Manual. Len Lattanzi ported it to the MIPS.

It has the following extensions: foreign function and data interface, dynamic array variables, subarray parameters, multi-dimensional open array parameters, inline procedures, longfloat type, type-checked interface to C library I/O routines.

It runs on VAX (Ultrix, BSD) and MIPS (Ultrix).
