SmartEiffel, the GNU Eiffel compiler, is a small, fast multi-platform Eiffel compiler. It should work on any platform for which an ANSI C POSIX compiler or a standard JVM exist. The project was formerly known as 'smalleiffel.' The Eiffel language is a pure object-oriented language providing strong type-checking and based on the concept of 'design by contract'. It allows multiple inheritance and does it well. Design-by-contract means that a class guarantees that certain conditions will always hold, and that a routine guarantees certain results given certain specified inputs. The rules for inheritance mean that contracts can be relied on even when classes are reused through inheritance.
