The introductory paragraph requires serious attention. I assume the facts are right, but the sentences are far far far too long, and some aren't even proper sentences. As far as I can tell, that is - it might simply be that they are too convoluted to be properly understood.Zjanes (talk) 13:08, 24 June 2010 (UTC)

Hi, it would be informative if the relationship between Modula-3 and Delphi was discussed in the Modula-3 article. ¨¨¨¨ Please let me know any bibliography you think could be of help, I would certainly look into a section on that, but first would be more appropriate and historically interesting with Modula-2+ (maybe Cedar too, and Mesa), and later newer languages and influenced languages like Obliq, etc, but certainly is important M3 direct predecessor which is Modula-2+ and now Acorn extended Modula-2.

Is it possible that Modula-3 was also inspired a bit by Caml? In particular, I'm thinking of the <: operator, which have similar (but not quite the same) usage in the two languages. Or perhaps they share a common ancestor not noted on Wikipedia? --71.3.229.125 (talk) 02:27, 26 December 2009 (UTC) They sahre this notation by one the designers Luca Cardelli which used this to refer to type subtype relationship between two types. This was not only used for theory of type system but as part of the syntax of it.
