Dear Arnauld,

Modula-2's real strength is in checking at compile time as much as possible. Catching run time errors are a matter of the implementation, i.e. the code the compiler generates and has little to do with the language itself.

Unfortunately, ISO/IEC 10514-1 requires overflow exceptions to be raised if the results of infix whole number, real, or complex expressions overflow.
