M2Sharp — A CLR hosted Modula-2 to C# Translator
Welcome to the M2Sharp Modula-2 to C# Translator and Compiler Project
The objective of this project is to develop a CLR hosted Modula-2 to C# translator and via-C# compiler that generates CLR executable code.
In translator mode, M2Sharp translates Modula-2 source to C# source files. In compiler mode, M2Sharp compiles Modula-2 source via C# source files to object code or executables using the host system's C# compiler.
M2Sharp supports the bootstrap kernel (BSK) subset of Modula-2 R10 (M2R10).
An online version of the language specification is here:
The authoritative language specification (PDF) is available for download:
M2C does not support the earlier PIM or ISO dialects.
The grammar of M2C's command line interface is in the project repository
The grammar of Modula-2 R10 is in the project repository
For a graphical representation of the grammar, see section Syntax Diagrams.
M2Sharp will generate C# sources compileable with any C# compiler.
There are no dependencies on any third party libraries.
M2Sharp will compile and run on any target system with a CLR execution environment.
- M2Sharp itself is written in C#.
- The syntax diagram generator script is written in TCL/TK (not required to build M2Sharp)
- Build configuration scripts are written in the prevalent shell language of the hosting platform
