Not on CoCo, but yes for Apple 2, Apple 3 and TI-99 (!).  Also have the 
Pecan P-System for MS-DOS and Mac.  Oh, and the Lisa has a full P-System 
available as part of the Pascal Workbench.

Haven't done a whole lot with any of them, but the very few programs that 
I've moved from one environment to the other appear to work fine. 
Everything back then was console apps, so there's not much to be 
incompatible with at the abstract level.
