According to vague memory, def files also existed in Modula-2 in

I have a Sparcstation 2 which had Debian 3 and has NetBSD 8.
Installed Bochs with intention of putting Oberon but Bochs gave a 
segmentation fault.  If anyone has a way to run Oberon on the old 
Sparc, I'd be interested to try.

Thanks,             ... Lyall E.
