Modula-2, an extended version of Pascal, transforms Pascal from a teaching language into a language suitable for serious professional programming. This book serves not as a comprehensive textbook on the language, but as a description of the experience of programming in Modula-2, with particular emphasis on issues of how to use the language to solve real problems.
