Oberon-2013 syntax is meant for the Oberon-2013 compiler provided on the
NW page. This compiler can be run under any Oberon System V4, and
presumably also under S3. Dave Hunter from SkuTek Instrumentation ported
this compiler to Linz V4. As far as I know he is using it to emit RISC5
binaries under Windows. These binaries cannot run under the regular
Windows V4 because they are meant for RISC5. In other words, the
Oberon-2013 compiler under Windows V4 is a cross-compiler. The * mark is
understood by this cross compiler.

Hope it helps,
