Newsgroups and Mailing Lists

[ top ]  Newsgroups

Newsgroups are discussion groups based on Usenet (a worldwide distributed Internet discussion system) which are accessed using Newsreaders or different web interfaces like Google Groups. I provide links to the Google application here because it is easy to use and grants access to the archive of Usenet which dates back to the eighties. Of course I know the people at Google do not do this for us - you have to decide wether you want to use information provided by them...

Most important there is a group dedicated to Modula-2: comp.lang.modula2 is the Modula-2 newsgroup where you can get help. The archive of the group contains very useful information and also some pieces of code.
Other Modula-2 Newsgroups are inactive for a long time but the archives may contain interesting information. There are maus.computer.sprache.modula-2 and fido7.su.pascal.modula.ada, the latter being a group communicating in Russian language. Both groups have some useful information in the archives.
About 700 old postings from net.lang.mod2 are still available at Google's archives. This has been the predecessor of comp.lang.modula2 till 1986. Don't forget to search related groups for information. I found comp.compilers, comp.lang.modula3 and comp.lang.oberon useful as all of these groups offer a lot of Modula-2 related posts.
If you are interested in programming embedded systems, you may also want to search comp.arch.embedded.

[ top ]  Mailing Lists

GNU Modula-2 mailing list: "provides a means whereby users and developers can communicate about GNU Modula-2". The archive of the list can be viewed and is a very helpful repository. The GNU Modula-2 support via the list is very good.

There is a Telegram Modula-2 group. The implementation of Modula-2 R10 is for example discussed there as well as general topics related to Modula-2.
