> Sorry Peter for my ugly edition of the wikibook! 

Adding DOS Oberon is a good idea, thanks.  

> ... sandbox on Wikipedia

You have a sandbox in each project.  Wikibooks sandbox and Wikipedia 
sandbox are distinct.

A sandbox is very simple.  Log in.  Click on "Sandbox" at the top of 
the screen. Type or paste any text.  Click "Show preview" at the 
bottom.  View the result. Continue editing or click "Save result" or 
click "Cancel".

Done.  Your information remains there in a more spartan form.  The 
multiple installation archives are found easily via the one link.  For 
instructions, the latest README.TXT is linked.  That includes most of 
the material from preceding versions.

The software is cited as the original report by A.R. Disteli.

> I only want to emphasize that are unique V1 and V2 working right 

Do the V1 and V2 for DOS Oberon correspond to V1 and V2 for Ceres?
Distinct versioning for distinct systems?  Disteli might explain in 
the report.

> unless we'll find Ceres versions

The Oberon sources are available in the original _Project_Oberon_.  
You can also see Texts.Mod at 
https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Oberon/V2/Texts.Mod . Other modules can 
be added in https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Oberon/V2/ ; just some work 
for anyone interested.

I can't help with the assembler code for Ceres.  Someone needs to 
power up a machine and retrieve it.  Many grants support visiting 
professors.  Investigate and find a grant to support a sabbatical at 
an institution in the Mountain View area.  Several universities are in 
the South Bay Area.  Then you can have access to the Ceres machines at 
the CHM and make one of them work.  Building a machine with 
wirewrap is also possible.

If the DOS Oberon information in the wikibook is too spartan it can be 
expanded. WIth care.

Progress, thanks,                        ... P. L.
