Modula-2.net has a comprehensive list of Modula-2 compilers on the net, a list of Modula-2 books and tutorials, ANTLR grammars of Modula-2 (PIM, ISO and R10) and lots of other information. There have been problems with the hosting of the site. Modula-2.info is online now which already contains some of the content from the former site.
DMOZ Open Directory Project: Modula-2: miscellaneous Modula-2 links.
Softpanorama: (slightly skeptical) Open Source Software Educational Society: Modula 2 Links.
Catalog of Free Compilers and Interpreters, by David Muir Sharnoff and Steven Allen Robenalt. A good collection of download-links for lots of compilers. I provide a link to section "Wirth family languages", wich contains lots of Modula-2 compilers.
thefreecountry.com: Modula-2: "Listed on this page are compilers (with or without a development environment) for the Modula-2 programming language".

[ top ]  Misc. Pages Related to Modula-2

Chris Burrows offers some great pages about Modula-2. There are parts of MODUS, the Modula-2 Users Association Newsletter. There also are original compilers by Niklaus Wirth available including sources and much more. He also made X68000 available which is a Modula-2 MC68000 Cross-Assembler: "The April and June 1986 issues of Doctor Dobb's Journal (Vol 11, Issues 4 and 6) described a 68000 Cross-assembler written in Modula-2 by Brian R Anderson. In April 1986 he released a revised version in which all known bugs were fixed and several new features were added."
pdp11 Assembler by J.G.Harston: "This is the PDP-11 assembler I wrote in April 1989 as a 31V4 Programming Systems assignment at Stirling University. It is written in Modula-2 and assembles a subset of instructions and all addressing modes as detailed in the assignment specification and user guide."
Jos Dreesen developed Emulith (Emulith is a register­level simulation, in C, of the ETH Lilith Modula­2 computer) and offers the entire source code of the software for the Lilith there including the Medos operating system.
Sources of a Modula-2 compiler written in C++ by Ben Wann. I have not tried to compile this one, it seems to be a college project.
Martin Brown offers "useful bits and bobs mostly related to JPI/TopSpeed Modula2".
Pat Terry has a collection of material related to Modula-2 available. Some really interesting things and thaughts. Some of the links are broken, but the page is worth a visit (Note the "song" Ten little Modulans).
VUB Parallel Computing Laboratory at the University of Brussels offers a good modula-2 page. Syntax reference, help on XDS and lots of other interesting papers. Also 3 demo-games with complete sourcecode.
A lexer for Modula-2 written in Python.
SIM. The program "tests lexical similarity in texts in C, Java, Pascal, Modula-2, Lisp, Miranda, and natural language. It is used to detect potentially duplicated code fragments in large software projects, in program text, in shell scripts and in documentation to detect plagiarism in software projects, educational and otherwise." Available as C sources and as MSDOS binaries.
Coco/R: "A LL(1) compiler generator which generates parsers and scanners in Modula-2. Includes full source code." The version for Modula-2 was made available by Pat Terry.
Kronos Research Group: Kronos seems to be an equivalent to Wirth's Lilith-Workstation from the Soviet Union. You can download a Windows-NT-emulator of Kronos there.
GRAS: "A Graph-Oriented Database System for SE Applications. The system GRAS with interfaces for the programming languages Modula-2 and C is available as public domain software for Sun3/Sun4 workstations (the GRAS system itself is implemented in Modula-2 and consists of many layers which might be reusable for the implementation of other systems)".
[DISAPPEARED?] WASP: "Static error checker Wasp employs powerful data flow analysis to detect subtle run-time errors and weak points in Java, Modula-2, and Oberon-2 programs. Wasp also produces detailed and precise method call graph. You are welcome to download a free Lite version of Wasp." The original website is offline since 2012, don't download from brothersoft.com, this is a malware site. Try to use your favorite search-engine to find more info about the program.

You may find the following links related to building GNU Modula-2 as a cross compiler for different targets useful as the URLs are a bit hard to find from the GNU Modula-2 homepage:

GNU Modula-2 as a cross compiler for the SA1110 arm processor (iPAQ H3850).
This page briefly describes how GNU Modula-2 can be used to produce ATMega8 binaries.
GM2 x MinGW
This page provides a script which builds the binutils, gcc and Modula-2 compilers from source for the purpose of cross compiling to the Windows platform.

Spanish Pages:
[DISAPPEARED?] Mocka tutorial and tools: description from submission: "A brief tutorial to start working with mocka in Linux. Use Kate (KDE's multifile editor) to compile, check and correct errors, generate executable and execute your project without leaving the editor. It supports also Modula-2 syntax highlighting and an embedded terminal emulator." The pages were updated and revised in 2011. You can also find information on the use of DDD (the GNU Data Display Debugger) with the Mocka compiler.
Pages of Nacho Cabanes: Section on Modula-2, links for downloading FST and tutorials - Mr. Cabanes converted the Coronado-Tutorial to one big HTML-file and wrote a short introduction to Modula-2 called Introduccion a Modula-2 para Pascal.
[DISAPPEARED?] Curso de Programación at a university in Uruguay. Some resources, links and a tutorial.
Users of FST Modula-2 may be interested in www.idemodula2.freeservers.com - there you can find a basic Windows-IDE for the compiler. It's only available in Spanish.

German Pages:
Prof. Dr. Theo Härder is really kind to share an impressive (250+ pages) script/book on data structures in Modula-2 (.pdf). You may download the file from his personal homepage at Technische Universität Kaiserslautern.
An introduction to informatics by Hans-Jürgen Appelrath und Jochen Ludewig called Skriptum Informatik is available. Very good stuff! Thanks for keeping it available.
Verena is a library for dealing with probability distributions. The handbook for the library is available from the given page at Bonn University, you may want to ask for distribution of the library there. The authors emphasize they are willing to share their work.
Two articles by Eckart Winkler are available from the authors homepage. Nice to have them available again. Topics are coroutines and procedural types.
Beschreibung der Sprache Modula-2: good and short introduction to modula-2.
