[Oberon] Oberon FPGA hardware point of view

The lady is called "Ada" after some very mathematically minded lady that
lived 150 years ago.🙈

In any case starting here is probably the easiest way for Ada in general.


There is a good toolkit available under GPL from adacore for stm32
processors and there is / was a good toolkit available for Atmel 'at'
processors, which is a bit stale by now. (no new development) For the time
being I have rolled my own toolkit for some of the new atmel 8 bit
The toolkits are based on the GNU compiler so whatever is good in that
beast is good in the toolkits.

I found I get very good and tight code. But some constructs in Ada give
better code than others (This is the big drawback of Ada compared to
Oberon. To many choices! So one does not work as fast.)
