The Eiffel compiler tecomp is a command line compiler. In the current status
it works like an Eiffel interpreter. It compiles Eiffel source code into an
internal representation and executes it in its virtual machine. Future
versions will also support compilation to C.
It runs on Unix and Windows machines (64/32 bit, big/little endian)
and on all machines which have gcc and the corresponding make
utilities installed (requirements see below).
Documentation can be found at [[http://tecomp.sourceforge.net]]. The compiler
can be downloaded from [[http://www.sourceforge.net/projects/tecomp]].
Check it out, read the tutorial and experiment with the Eiffel language. Its
fun. The tutorial is written in the style of Brian Kernigham and Denis
Ritchies book "The C Programming Language". It emphasizes your capability to
come fast up to speed to write useful Eiffel programs. With a basic knowledge
of programming in other languages like C, C++ or Java you can learn Eiffel

The directory examples contains a lot of example programs together with the
needed acefile. All programming examples from the Eiffel language description
can be found within the examples directory.
