Hi Chris,
no time for Oberon ATM, otherwise I also would have a look at Linux Oberon.

Notepad++ as a free editor for Windoze gives at least multiple tabs for 
files and also a vertical split or additional editor windows.
In environments like Visual Studio oder Eclipse it`s possible to open 
and arrange multiple files on your screen. Nevertheless I prefer the 
Wirth style :-)
Also Emacs (Unix+Windows)  gives you the chance to have multiple open 
files in your editor.
Some people also use vi (vim, elvis) on Unix.

I guess GC is the return type of the function. C doesn't have a module 
concept :-(
