1983–1994
Modula-2 always seemed like a better Pascal, but never really took off commercially.
1986
Bought some early version of somebody's Modula-2 Compiler. Played around a bit but did not take it very far. When I found C I found myself not caring to go much further.
1986
tried it, mainly as the compiler was one of the early ones to bust the 640K memorylimit on the PC. But never really took off.
1990
Wrote a small amount of Modula-2 related to a graphics library I implemented in x86 assembler.
1991
This was the language taught in 2nd year Computer Science. What I learned from this: a brilliant idea (like Pascal) is rarely followed by more brilliant ideas.
1991
1992
Taught as part of the algorithms and data structures course. Never used it outside university.
1992–1993
learned in university
1993–1994
Modula-2 was the programming language UND used when I was a freshman for freshman computer science classes. I quickly abandoned it for C++.
1994–1995
Used in school.
1996–1997
1999
Used Modula-2 at the University to learn realtime programming on embedded systems.
