Correct -- see the documentation here: 

One interesting point is that they implemented their compilers shortly 
after the first Oberon reports came out.  Thus they use the def/mod 
combination in the original reports.  When Wirth removed the definition 
part, they did not follow suit.

No Windows.  SunOS on the Sun 3 and Linux on x86.

The man pages may be found on this page:

You are most welcome.

(On a side note, I use their Oberon and Modula-2 compilers on 
Solaris/Sparc.  Their Modula-2 compiler is PIM[234].)
