Oberon is a general-purpose programming language created in the late 1980s by Niklaus Wirth, the Swiss computer scientist known for Pascal. The language and its accompanying programming environment were designed as successors to Modula-2 and was conceived as part of a project aimed at developing an entire new computing system, including hardware and software. Oberon's goal is to create a simple yet powerful tool for writing programs without unnecessary complexity. Like Pascal, it includes strong typing but with added features such as garbage collection for memory management. The language was developed alongside the operating system Oberon and was later influenced by Component Pascal in its evolution.
