Benjamin is making excellent points I fully concur with and urge to consider.
However, I use this opportunity to comment on another problem I have with gm2 given some sample code in this thread. At the risk of repeating myself, strictly applying following capitalisation rules would make gm2 code much more readable:
These simple rules are a very useful and well established practice how to code in Modula-2 as it let’s one immediately understand what kind of object one is dealing with, in particular also in code sections that are far below the initial declaration. They have proven to be very helpful for efficient programming (reading, writing, checking correctness of code etc). It escapes me why gm2 seems to be plagued from C like or other habits that deviate from this helpful Modula-2 practice. A pity. BTW, for me this is the biggest turn off from gm2 and its library.

Make it as simple as possible, but distrust it!
