Coronado Enterprises Modula-2 TUTOR (ver 2.00) Feb 1, 1989


Getting Started with the Modula-2 tutorial

The first thing you should do is to backup the distribution disk-
ettes and store the distribution diskettes away in a safe place.
Use only the copy for all operations.


Getting started with the TEXT diskette

Before you begin studying Modula-2, you must print out a copy of the
tutorial text. The file named PRINTEXT.BAT is designed to help you
do this. Simply type the name PRINTEXT at the DOS prompt and all of
the tutorial text will be printed for you. This batch file uses the
executable file named PRNTTEXT.EXE to print the files. This execut-
able file prints the files with 8 spaces at the beginning of each
line for neat formatting. It will print about 125 pages.


Getting started with the SOURCE diskette

If you desire, a printout of all example Modula-2 files can be made
using the PRINTALL.BAT file included. Simply type PRINTALL at the
command prompt with the printer on and lots of paper in place. It
will print about 150 pages. You may want to edit a copy of the
PRINTALL.BAT file to only print part of the files initially, and
print the remainder as you come to them in the lessons.

PRINTALL.BAT uses the file LIST.EXE to actually do the printing.
This is a program written in Pascal and compiled with TURBO Pascal,
because Borland International does not require a licensing fee for
distributing executable files.

CORONADO ENTERPRISES NEWS AND ORDER FORM

At this time, Coronado Enterprises has completed tutorials on Ada,
Pascal, Modula-2, and C. Other languages are being considered but
we need your thoughts as to what other languages should be covered
with a tutorial next. Please write and let us know your needs.

This tutorial is available in a completely printed form. It was
very carefully designed with easy to read fonts and printed with a
laser printer. Diagrams for the pointer examples are included
which add to the clarity of understanding. It is impossible to
include diagrams on a Shareware ASCII disk, so these are made
available to you separately as listed below.

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
