This is a modernised version of Modula-2 in which some outdated features are removed (octal literals, local modules etc) and variant records are replaced with Oberon-style extensible records. However, the compiler is still work in progress.Gaius Mulley stated that he intends to implement this as an additional dialect in GM2, but I have no idea about the timing.regardsbenjaminOn Tue, 24 Mar 2020 at 23:35, Hưng Hưng <address@hidden> wrote:I know this style, from Oberon. I played a bit with Oberon but I found I want something more like a proper language and of course more powerful so I choose GM2.If I just IMPORT EXAMPLE; the procedure inside EXAMPLE doesn't automatically available to me but I have to prepend EXAMPLE. before every procedure I want to use. It's very time consuming and imagine if our module has a very long name... it will be a nightmare.Vào Th 3, 24 thg 3, 2020 vào lúc 21:29 Benjamin Kowarsch <address@hidden> đã viết:You should not use unqualified imports.FROM Foo IMPORT Bar, Baz, Bam; (* VERY BAD STYLE *)Use qualified import instead.IMPORT Foo; (* PROPER/CLEAN STYLE *)This way you do not need to import identifiers one by one.This also saves you the hassle of making up longer more specific names.Instead ofFROM StringLib IMPORT stringsAreEqual;IF stringsAreEqual(str1, str2) THEN ...you doIMPORT StringT;IF StringT.equal(str1, str2) THEN ...On Tue, 24 Mar 2020 at 22:27, Hưng Hưng <address@hidden> wrote:I found it's too time consuming to write a long list of import, export. Is there any syntax to import everything from a module? e.g: FROM EXAMPLE IMPORT */ALL/EVERYTHING/... or IMPORT EXAMPLE.*? Python has a syntax like this: from example import *; which I think heavily influenced by M2.I wonder the same thing for Export, too. Thanks.
