Programming languages similar to or like Modula
Descendant of the Pascal language. Wikipedia
General-purpose programming language first published in 1987 by Niklaus Wirth and the latest member of the Wirthian family of ALGOL-like languages . The result of a concentrated effort to increase the power of Modula-2, the direct successor of Pascal, and simultaneously to reduce its complexity. Wikipedia
Extension of the original Oberon programming language that adds limited reflection and object-oriented programming facilities, open arrays as pointer base types, read-only field export and reintroduces the loop from Modula-2. Developed in 1991 at ETH Zurich by Niklaus Wirth and Hanspeter Mössenböck, who is now at Institut für Systemsoftware of the University of Linz, Austria. Wikipedia
- Module scope was pioneered in the Modula family of languages, and Python (which was influenced by Modula) is a representative contemporary example.
- One of the first languages designed from the start for modular programming was the short-lived Modula (1975), by Niklaus Wirth.
- Presented in 1983 in the PhD dissertation of Insup Lee, DYMOS was a fully integrated system that had access to an interactive user interface, a compiler and runtime for a Modula variant, and source code.
- Since Niklaus Wirth went on to develop languages such as Modula and Oberon (where one could define a module before knowing about the entire program specification), one can infer that top-down programming was not strictly what he promoted.
