In the latest copy of Dr. Dobbs Journal there is a letter from an irate
person who claims to have ordered Modula-2 from JRT (for 102.95) and
was assurred it would be shipped "the next day". Well we know what happened
right? Its been 3 months, no one answers the phone at JRT and when he sent
them a letter reiceipt requested, Good ol' Mr. Tyson signed for it. Draw your
own conclusions, I personally don't wish to invest in that company. 

It does raise two questions though.

1.) Has anyone heard of a Full Modula-2 for Z80 based systems ? Borland is
    working on one but it seems there is practically no support for the 
    8 Bit people out there. They expect theirs "sometime" after the MS-DOS
    one comes out (currently Q1 85)

2.) If not Modula, how about a good concurrent PASCAL?
