From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

  Modula-2
  
      A high-level programming language designed by
     Niklaus Wirth at ETH in 1978.  It is a derivative of
     Pascal with well-defined interfaces between modules, and
     facilities for parallel computation.  Modula-2 was developed
     as the system language for the Lilith workstation.
  
     The central concept is the module which may be used to
     encapsulate a set of related subprograms and data structures,
     and restrict their visibility from other portions of the
     program.  Each module has a definition part giving the
     interface, and an implementation part.
  
     The language provides limited single-processor concurrency
     ({monitors, coroutines and explicit transfer of control)
     and hardware access ({absolute addresses and interrupts).
     It uses name equivalence.
