Honorable mention (Wirth did give much advice for this derivative): ('94)

(EDIT): P.S. Except for OberonOS (confusing) and M3forDOS (ex32, didn't work on real PC or DOSBox), I've tried all of these briefly. If I knew how (so far tried and failed), I'd get OO2C, m3/pc '96, and GNU Modula-2 to build with DJGPP. :-(

(EDIT #5150):
Note to marcov, please (re-)read A Plea for Lean Software (1995).
