If Only Borland Had Stuck With Turbo Modula-2 For CP/M
Like Turbo Pascal, Turbo Modula-2 was an Integrated Development Environment including a compiler and Wordstar based editor. On top of this TM-2 added a separate linker and library manager. The most obvious initial difference is the size of an installation: TM-2 takes up 142Kb, compared to TP’s tiny 34Kb. However for this you get a lot more facilities, a bigger library and an altogether more sophisticated system.
