intent to package: another m2c
I have been looking at a lot of modula-2 packages. There is always
something missing or something non-free.
Thanks to Vladimir Makarov, there is one that is unproblematic
and distributed under the GPL and LGPL .
It doesn't support the latest ISO standard, but neither do most of
the non-free ones.
This is Modula-2 translator. The translator is based on language
report in the 4th edition of Wirth's book Programming in Modula-2.
The translator also supports of the third edition of Wirth's book.
High portability of the translator is achieved by intermediate
translation into C. The translator is aimed to use on Unixes of
The translator is distributed under GNU Public License (see more
detail in file COPYING).
Installation of the translator is described in file INSTALL. File
PROJECTS contains the list of future works on the implementation. See
file m2c.1 for details of the translator usage.
The translator has been tested only on the following platforms:
vax under Ultrix
i386 under Linux
sparc under SunOS 4.1
alpha under OSF3.x
