                Adding Concurrency to the Oberon System

The Oberon system, developed by Niklaus Wirth and Jurg Gutknecht
is unusual in that, although it has a "single process multi-tasking"
window user interface, it does not support concurrent execution of
programs. This approach yields a simple design and works surprisingly
well, but it does have limitations of practical importance. In this
report we describe a project, Concurrent Oberon, which introduces
concurrency into the Oberon system while maintaining the simplicity and
spirit of the original system.
