In theory Oberon compilers couls have the same ABI like there c counterparts,
however, the compilers I know (native X86 and native ARM) use a different ABI.
For X86 Oberon, I think wrapper procedures could be written.
My opinion on this topic:
There are only 2 CPU architectures (ARM and X86) left in the market with 5
instruction sets (ARM Thumb, ARM, AA64, x86 and X64). While I would like to
see all these instruction sets supported, at least both architectures have
Oberon compilers. And I would like to see to go back to the roots (i.e.
systems without threads, but data and interfaces compatible with the rest of
