The course was used during the previous 4 years in Bacau University by Lect. drd. Dan Popa. The software support was provided by University of Linz. It consists of POW-IDE and the Oberon Compiler.
Despite the existence of best programming environments used by engineers all over the world like BlackBox - which is also based on Oberon, this course was replaced by a Visual C course. That is why this e-book becomes available as Open Doc.
If you want to use Pow! for programming you can download it from: http://www.fim.uni-linz.ac.at/pow/Download.htm. Pow may also be used with C++ and Java.
