Hello to all!

Hopefully, this thread does not violate the spirit of the forum.

My question is simple: "Does anyone know if there is any Oberon (02 or 07 version) compiler targeting the Linux x86_64 platforms?"

Thank you in advance for your help.

Not something that I can immediately answer, but @lproven sent me over this a few days ago


--- Quote ---The Oberon list is getting livelier, I note. Recent discussions have gone, broadly...

So we have the code and the permission... who has repos?
OK... several of you. OK, who's in charge?
Nobody's in charge? So we can do what we want?
OK... I want to try to unify 2 dialects. I'm going to add back the features to this version that were removed.
[Small argument]
So, this will broaden the range of software we can use, and make more code usable. And we almost all agree that's good. Right, I'm doing it then.
[A day or 2 later]
Here's my POC code. Does it look OK?

The pace seems to be picking up just a tiny bit.

Meanwhile pasting chat logs into Google Translate reveals that the Russians are planning to fork it and translate the code, keywords, compilers etc all into Russian.

I don't blame them -- there's been bugger-all interest from the west in decades. It means a fork but it's a small codebase.

I know of the following. All on Github except for obnc.


* Rochus Keller Oberon-07, transpiles to C++, also generates LuaJIT bytecodes
* AntKrotov Oberon-07, self-hosting compiler targeting Linux, Windows for x86, x86_64 and ARM
* obnc, transpiles to C
* Vishap Oberon, "uses a C backend (gcc, clang or msc) to compile Oberon programs under Unix, Mac or Windows."

There is component Pascal, despite the name, it is Oberon.
