Thanks. Liked it a lot, so it is a good move from Walter to not let it die.

GCC: D and Modula-2

Since we got a bit distracted in the other thread, I'll mention it here:

First of all, I have no idea about GPC. They seemed to give up after 4.2.x backend work in 2011. And not many people still care about ISO "standards" in Pascal, apparently. So FPC may be non-standard (though obviously mostly supports ISO 7185 by now), but it's extremely good. Any portability concerns with FPC are still less than with any other Pascals. "Standard" code that runs nowhere else isn't very useful. (Oberon, while nice overall, is worse in that regard.)

For the others, GNU Cauldron 2018 has some videos, including some stuff about C++ modules (interesting, but I haven't watched yet) plus D and Modula-2. According to Phoronix, D has officially been integrated into GCC for upcoming version 9! Not sure about GM2, but even that seems extremely mature at this point, so I'd be surprised if it didn't get integrated later. (AFAIK, you were quite the aficionado of Modula-2 at one point.)

I don't know what this means for DJGPP. Probably nothing. I'm not sure if they will survive in the coming years or not. I'm grateful for what they've done, but I don't expect miracles.
