    history: Modula-2 was released in 1979. Created by Niklaus Wirth at ETH in Zurich, Switzerland. Wirth also created the Lilith computer, a Modula-2 machine.

    Modula-2 was based on Pascal and Modula. “Modula-2 has separately compiled library modules, and makes much less use of blocks (begin...) than Standard Pascal. Identifiers are case sensitive; there is no goto label; and I/O is in libraries rather than built in. The IF statement is more versatile; and there are facilities for concurrent programming via coroutines. Extended Pascals may have some of these features.” according to Modula-2 FAQ
