M3forDOS is a port of SRC Modula-3 version 3.1 to a PC running MSDOS. It is available via anonymous ftp from gatekeeper.dec.com and its mirrors in pub/DEC/Modula-3/contrib/M3forDOS.
The system used to be called "ex32", but that's really only the name of the DOS extender. Here is the announcement for the earlier system:
