A modula-2 cross-compiler for the Macintosh.
There is a Modula-2 cross-compiler available on the Prime, which currently generates code for the Prime. This cross-compiler was developed at ETH (Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule) in Zürich, Switzerland, by a team lend by H. Seiler, and was based on the original compiler written by Niklaus Wirth. This cross-compiler is called Smiler-2, and has code generators for the MC-68000, MC6809, and the PDP-11. The code generation pass and linker for the Prime ere written by Greg Ewing at the University of Canterbury in 1985. The aims of this project were to translate the ETH MC-68000 code generator from CDC-6000 Pascal to Sheffield Pascal, and modify either the Prime or ETH linker so that it produced a Macintosh resource fork, which could then be incorporated into an application file on the Macintosh.
