The DEC Modula 3 compiler, and its descenedents, like the Polytechnique
Modula 3 compiler.
I vaguely remember that this program was non-free and worked with GCC
in some way, but I don't remember the details. I knew more about it
once upon a time, and if I thought at the time that there was a GPL
violation, I am sure I would have done something about it then.
Do you think that there is a chance we could persuade Compaq
to rerelease this compiler as free software now?
