1998 means that your code was written for ECLiPSe 3.X or 4.0.  You can find
the release notes for all subsequent releases at

The major changes in the module system happened in release 5.0, and are
summarily described in
More detail (probably more than you want to know) about this change is in 
in particular a section on module_interface/1 towards the end.

Generally, we have tried to keep things backward-compatible.  Even the
module_interface/1 directive is still recognized, and interpreted in terms
of the newer functionality as far as possible.  You will get a warning
about the obsolete directive, but much of it should still work.

I am always interested in larger ECLiPSe programs for inclusion in our
test suite.  So, if your software is openly available, and comes with
a collection of test cases, I would be interested in including it.

Please let us know if you run into porting problems.
