This group is not part of the GNU Project.

Modula-2 was implemented for DEC RT-11 and Medos on Lilith. Around the time the Oberon system was transitioning from the Ceres-1 to Ceres-2, the fourth (and final) edition of PIM was released, in English in 1988 and German in 1992. Compilers of this time included MacMeth for MacOS on PPC, and a Blackbox Component Builder compiler for Windows.

m2c intends to implement the language described in PIM4 (1988), preserving the simplicity of Wirth's language as he defined it, and providing a compiler capable of compiling programs from PIM4 and AD (1986).

This is a fork of m2c-0.6, last distributed with Debian GNU/Linux and Red Hat, written by Vladimir Makarov in C.
