Oberon

Oberon is a programming language in the same family as Pascal and Modula.

Oberon is also the name of an operating system written in the Oberon language. Its main user-visible characteristic is an innovative "text user interface". From a technological point of view, Oberon's innovations include:

  • a "managed" runtime environment long before Java or C# came to market,
  • rock-solid type safety, permitting efficient multitasking entirely in kernel-space, and,
  • a language whose specifications was actually smaller than K&R's original C specification, yet remains just as expressive, is fully semantically specified and proven (albeit by third parties), and easier to use.
