Not really... what's not specifically defined in the Oberon language 
report is normally intentionally left undefined; then implementors look 
at the behaviour of Prof. Wirth's compilers to find direction on how to 
implement something in order to be compatible, but the choice is 
basically up to them.

So I would suggest looking at how the Oberon RISC compiler generates 
code, as the easiest route.
