Reflection in Oberon


What is Reflection?

A programming system is reflective if programs can obtain run-time information about themselved or about other programs. Information includes the names and values of variables, the structure of types, the current contents of the activation stack, etc. This information can be used for example to implement debugging services, embedded command languages, general print routines, or exception handling mechanisms. We implemented a set of Oberon modules which allow programs to use reflection.
