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. conformance: extensions: + foreign function and data interface + dynamic array variables + subarray parameters + multi-dimensional open array parameters + inline proceedures + longfloat type + type-checked interface to C library I/O routines restriction: must pass changes back to Digital ports: vax (ultrix, bsd), mips (ultrix) contact: modula-2@decwrl.pa.dec.com updated: 1992/07/06 language: Modula-2 package: Ulm's Modula-2 System version: 3.0 parts: compiler, library, tools, documentation author: Andreas Borchert <borchert@mathematik.uni-ulm.de> location: ftp://ftp.mathematik.uni-ulm.de/pub/soft/modula/ulm/sun4/ description: This system may be used like other traditional systems (e.g. cc) from the command line.

A PRAM consists of P processors, an unbounded shared memory, and a common clock. Each processor is a random access machine (RAM) consisting of R registers, a program counter, and a read-only signature register. Each RAM has an identical program, but the RAMs can branch to different parts of the program. The RAMs execute the program synchronously one instruction in one clock cycle. pm2 programming language is Modula-2/Pascal mixture having extensions for parallel execution in a PRAM. Parallelism is expressed by pardo-loop- structure. Additional features include privat/shared variables, two synchronization strategies, load balancing and parallel dynamic memory allocation. contact: Simo Juvaste <sjuva@cs.joensuu.fi> updated: 1993/02/17 language: Modula-3 package: SRC Modula-3 version: 3.5 parts: compiler(->C), runtime library, documentation author: DEC Systems Research Center <m3-request@src.dec.com> LINUX version compiled by Michel Dagenais location: ftp://gatekeeper.dec.com/pub/DEC/Modula-3/release-3.5/*.tar.gz MSDOS: ftp://gatekeeper.dec.com/pub/DEC/Modula-3/contrib/m3pc* OS2: ftp.vlsi.polymtl.ca in pub/m3/os2 (binaries only) description: The goal of Modula-3 is to be as simple and safe as it can be while meeting the needs of modern systems programmers. Instead of exploring new features, we studied the features of the Modula family of languages that have proven themselves in practice and tried to simplify them into a harmonious language. We found that most of the successful features were aimed at one of two main goals: greater robustness, and a simpler, more systematic type system. Modula-3 retains one of Modula-2's most successful features, the provision for explicit interfaces between modules. It adds objects and classes, exception handling, garbage collection, lightweight processes (or threads), and the isolation of unsafe features. conformance: implements the language defined in SPwM3. requires: gcc, preferrably X11 ports: i386/AIX 68020/DomainOS Acorn/RISCiX MIPS/Ultrix 68020/HP-UX RS6000/AIX IBMRT/4.3 68000/NextStep i860/SVR4 SPARC/SunOS 68020/SunOS sun386/SunOS Multimax/4.3 VAX/Ultrix FreeBSD Linux discussion: comp.lang.modula3 contact: Bill Kalsow <kalsow@src.dec.com> updated: 1995/07/09 language: Oberon2 package: Oberon-2 LEX/YACC definition version: 1.4 parts: parser(yacc), scanner(lex) author: Stephen J Bevan <bevan@cs.man.ac.uk> location: ftp://ftp.psg.com/pub/oberon/tools/o2lexyac.tar.Z http://panther.cs.man.ac.uk/~bevan/oberon description: A LEX and YACC grammar for Oberon 2 based on the one given in the listed reference. reference: The Programming Language Oberon-2 H.

This language supports the following programming paradigms/purposes: 1) Structurally object-oriented specification of attributed graph structures with multiple inheritance hierarchies and types of types (for parametric polymorphy). 2) Declarative/relational specification of derived attributes, node sets, binary relationships (directed edges), and Boolean constraints. 3) Rule-oriented/visual specification of parameterized graph rewrite rules with complex application conditions. 4) Nondeterministic & imperative programming of composite graph transformations (with built-in backtracking and cancelling arbitrary sequences of failing graph modifications). Therefore, PROGRES may be used as 1) a very high level programming language for implementing abstract data types with a graph-like internal structure, 2) a visual database programming language for the graph-oriented database system GRAS (which is available as free software under the GNU license conditions), 3) a rule-oriented language for rapid prototyping nondeterministically specified data/rule base transformations. Furthermore, PROGRES is an almost statically typed language which additionally offers "down casting" operators for runtime checked type casting/conversion (in order to avoid severe restrictions concerning the language's expressiveness).

PLAN is a small functional scripting language that is intended to be carried in communication packets and evaluated on routers in an active network. Its primary goal is to support 1. finding, installing, and invoking services, and 2. diagnostics for routers and the network with authentication only on services that require it. PLAN programs are guaranteed to terminate and have predictable behavior over a limited safe interface. PLAN programs with this limited interface can therefore be interpreted by all active routers to all active packets. PLAN programs may also access libraries of other services that may not be provided to all packets, based on authorization.

MySQL is a true multi-user, multi-threaded SQL database server. A very fast thread-based memory allocation system. No memory leaks. Tested with a commercial memory leakage detector (purify). Includes isamchk, a very fast utility for table checking, optimization and repair. Full support for the ISO-8859-1 Latin1 character set. For example, the Scandinavian characters @ringaccent{a}, @"a and @"o are allowed in table and column names. All data are saved in ISO-8859-1 Latin1 format. All comparisons for normal string columns are case insensitive. Sorting is done according to the ISO-8859-1 Latin1 character set (the Swedish way at the moment). It is possible to change this in the source by adding new sort order arrays. To see an example of very advanced sorting, look at the Czech sorting code. MySQL supports many different character sets that can be specified at compile time. Aliases on tables and columns as in the SQL92 standard. DELETE, INSERT, REPLACE, and UPDATE return how many rows were changed (affected). Function names do not clash with table or column names. For example, ABS is a valid column name. The only restriction is that for a function call, no spaces are allowed between the function name and the `(' that follows it. Clients connect to the MySQL server using TCP/IP connections or Unix sockets, or named pipes under NT. The EXPLAIN command can be used to determine how the optimizer resolves a query.

It was first designed by Don Woods and Jim Lyons in 1972 as a deliberate attempt to produce a language as unlike any existing one as possible. The manual, describing features of horrifying uniqueness, became an underground classic. ESR wrote C-INTERCAL in 1990 as a break from editing _The_New_Hacker's_Dictionary_, adding to it the first implementation of COME FROM under its own name. The compiler has since been maintained and extended by an international community of technomasochists. The distribution includes extensive documentation and a program library. C-INTERCAL is actually an INTERCAL-to-C source translator which then calls the local C compiler to generate a binary.
