An introduction to Oberon

Einführung in die Programmiersprache Oberon

G. Sawitzki, StatLab Heidelberg

This is the material for an introductionary course in Oberon, used at StatLab Heidelberg. For the convenience of our students, all of the material is in German. The base material is in the format of Oberon System 3 files. You can download the course material in ASCII-coded form. Postscript versions are available as individual files or as compressed tar file. A previous version is also available for Oberon V4. To access this and other additional material use ftp access. Use binary ftp for downloading material in image format, e.g. Oberon archive files (.Arc).

The HTML version you can access here is a program generated conversion from Oberon text to HTML. The converter is still under development, and some features may be missing in this converted version. Hypertext facilities are not yet active in the HTML version of this document.

The English language version has by large been program converted as well. The converter is still under development. Comments and corrections are welcome to gs/ gs.

To exploit the interactive facilities, install Oberon System 3 and use the Oberon version
This course is part of the VIROR initiative, the Virtual University Oberrhein. For off-site students, please consult the general VIROR information page.


For the convenience of our students, a German version is available. Sorry, neither Spanish nor Catalan versions are available so far.
