Version 2.11

compiler(->C), run-time, library, documentation

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.
