M Technology is the solid foundation of VISTA. An ANSI standard computer language, M isolates VISTA Applications from the underlying hardware platform, providing real-world portability. Because of M portability over the decades, VISTA has easily migrated from 1970's minicomputers to today's high-performance servers.
Note: M is an alternate name for MUMPS. When you read about M or MUMPS in these pages, you are reading about one and the same technology.
Jacquard Systems Research publishes a comprehensive definition of the M Standard, past and present, as compiled by Ed de Moel.
The 'comp.lang.mumps' Google Group has been a forum for M discussion for 20 years.
