Lola2 Compiler Source Code

The hardware description language (HDL) Lola (Logic Language) was designed by Niklaus Wirth in 1990 as an effort to present a simple and effective textual description of digital circuits. Other, similar but more complex, HDLs that you may have heard of are VHDL and Verilog . The use of the Lola2 com...

RISC5 Oberon Compiler Source Code

CPIde now includes the full source code for an Oberon for FPGA RISC5 command-line compiler as example code. These are the same source code modules used for the Oberon compiler in Astrobe for FPGA RISC5 . Consequently, the source code, symbol files and code files it uses and generates are 100% compa...

Re: Spurious Imports

I have checked and as far as I can see the Astrobe compiler more or less works like the Project Oberon compiler as far as indirect imports go. As an example, if module M1 imports Texts and module M1 exports an item that references Texts then a module that imports M1 will indirectly import Texts as w...

Re: Spurious Imports

The v8.0 Astrobe compiler includes some modifications to the way symbol files are handled to as mentioned in the What's New notes: The items in an IMPORT list may now be included in any order. The sequence is not affected by dependencies or indirect imports. I'm on leave right now - I'll check somet...

Re: Spurious Imports

Search for the word ''índirect'' in the Project Oberon book and you will find references to indirect module imports which should help in understanding when they occur and why they are needed.

Debugging GPCP using Visual Studio

John Gough (the author of the Gardens Point family of compilers, including GPCP) wrote an article to address this issue: Back in the early days of Visual Studio.NET the IDE shipped with a program called DbgCLR, which was found in a GuiDebug directory in the VS distribution. Since VS-2008, this progr...
