„Portable“ means that the module is coded in standard, normal Oberon programming language without using low level features provided by SYSTEM.
„Portable“ does not mean that the code is 1:1 portable between different versions of the Oberon language. (Oberon, Oberon-2, Active Oberon, Oberon-07). If you take Out.Mod as an example, portng it from language version to language version is rather straight forward. But this is not a gven.
