Yes! I saw it there, but like you say, the A2 ftp server is in a coma
- again! ;)

I have that, thanks. However, the conceptual questions in the
exercises are not dealt with in Jan's bundle. I think though, I've
changed my mind about _how_ I want to learn Oberon. "Programming in
Oberon - Steps Beyond Pascal and Modula" is for CS students and
mathematicians - not a hacker and and long-time string manipulator
like me. I wish that I could find an Oberon tutorial that resembles
the approach taken in the following Icon language tutorial:

"Icon Programming for Humanists", at http://unicon.sourceforge.net/ubooks.html
 - bottom of page. If you (or anyone else on this list) are aware of
 such a document, would you please let me know? Thank...
