One thing you might want to look at actually doesn't fit most of the
criteria that you named...
The Fitted Software Tools Modula-2 compiler has an integrated environment,
but can be used from command lines as well. An option exists to produce
.OBJ files, and I have successfully linked them with the MS-DOS linker,
as well as the Logitech linker.
Also, when the linker options were set up correctly, I was able to produce
the necessary support to do symbolic debugging with Symdeb, Microsoft's
intermediate debugging product.
This is Shareware, $39 (US), and Source code for the library and
runtime exists. There is a minor tee-hee with the source, in that it uses
the in-line assembly option at least once in most modules, and renders
The compiler, editor, make utilities, etc., are not available in source.
I was experienced with several other Modula-2 and Pascal compilers when
I picked up the FST product, and I think it fits the student/educational
niche very well.
The address for FST is: Fitted Software Tools / POB 867403 / Plano, TX 75086
Austin, TX 78723
