Object-Oriented Turing is an extension of the Turing programming language and a replacement for Turing Plus created by Ric Holt[1][2] of the University of Toronto, Canada, in 1991. It is imperative, object-oriented, and concurrent. It has modules, classes, single inheritance, processes, exception handling, and optional machine-dependent programming.

There is an integrated development environment under the X Window System and a demo version.[citation needed] Versions exist for Sun-4, MIPS, RS-6000, NeXTSTEP, Windows 95 and others.
