A post of nearly ten years ago from Wojtek Skulski, who
was previously an active poster to this mailing-list,
told about an ETH-thesis [perhaps not completed]
on a 'shark' compiler/system of ETH-oberon by
Urban Gerber.     goog shows many: ETH+Gerber,
but no 'Urban Gerber'.

I have a feeling that I have seen the document. 
But I now fail to find it.

I had the impression that the device was a low-power
CPU by 'Analog Devices'.  Now I'm confused, since the
'Shark' of :-------------

  which I'm working-through is ARM based.
Since Analog devices have the 'Blackfin' CPU, I thought 
they had reserved the sea-fish-names.
I had the impresion that the Analog Devices CPU
was simpler than the ARM; perhaps like the Blackfin,
it had no MMU ?

Q - can anybody suggest pointers to help me find this 
document, perhaps via W.Skulski or old ETHZ records ?
