    I did a term of Modula 2 in the first year of university - although to be honest the best bit was the excellent syntax highlighter for Emacs someone had done. The next year, instead of exploring the OO parts of Modula 2 (or 3) we moved onto the new thing, Java.

    To some extent I can understand ISAs from the 1970s (Z80) and 1980s (M68k) still being supported due to a wide range of low-power embedded systems using them, but languages with very little real world use? Specially in what's supposed to be a production compiler suite and not something a maintained and developed for fun by people in their free time.

    Why?

    Back in the day RIT was teaching with Modula 2 and honestly I never saw the point. Of course back then we didn't have the huge standard libraries that most languages come with these days.

    Not sure how going from C to Modula 2 is backwards in any way... But I think most of Modula2's userbase ended up using Free Pascal so I can't blame you

    Anyhow, Go combines Oberon and C rather well so you'd do well to check it out once generics are out later in the year.

    Phoronix: Modula-2 Programming Language Front-End Still Looking Towards Mainline GCC In 2021

    The Modula-2 programming language developed from the late 70's to 80's might finally see mainline GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) support in 2021...
