Just a remark to ProjectOberon:
If you place the error strings directly in the compiler (instead of an external file), you have to be aware that ORG.maxStrx restricts the string space of one module to 2400 characters.

When I enhanced the compiler with new features (eg numeric CASE, improved CONST evaluation…) I had to add more error strings as well. As I didn‘t want to increase macStrx, I shortened/streamlined all error strings in the compiler to make room for more error strings.
