A bit-off-sbuject (not for the Compupro, but for another 32016 system).

Acorn's 32016 second processor for the Beeb (also modified and used in
the Acorn Cambridge Workstation) ran an operating system called Panos on
top of some firmware called Pandora.

There were various languages available, including BASIC (which may have
run directly on Pandora), Fortran, Lisp and C. The BASIC was
interpretted, the rest compiled.
