ucsd-pascal came close, and certainly Wirths's wonderfull machine
Lilith programmed solely in Modula-2 did it (there was no other
language on the machine:) and surely you're not going to argue about
emacs here.  And then there was this M8600 based M6809 development
machine I once had the joy to play with for which all device drivers
had to be programmed in Pascal.  So here you have 4 examples, need more?
