I dragged this out and, if a few minutes, got m2tom3 to compile under CM3
by eliminating IMPORT TextF and changing 4 places from the form TextVariable[j]
to Text.GetChar(TextVariable,j).  This is file m2tom3/src/Analyzer/Standard,m3.
The result is attached.

It compiled and linked on AMD64_LINUX, and executed enough to give the help text
and to translate a tiny bit of Modula-2 code.

I'm biting my tongue on why it was coded this way in the first place.
