Eiffel, the universe and everything. (somethings anyway)
This document is a brief introduction to the programming language, Eiffel version 2.2, as currently available on the Sparc Workstations. It assumes a basic knowledge of object oriented concepts, terminology and techniques. Further details of the terminology and techniques associated with Eiffel can be obtained from Meyer. Version 3 should be available during 1992. Any changes will be reported in a subsequent document. The remainder of this document has two sections. The first section contains the general information required to access and use the Eiffel environment. An example system supplied with the environment is used to demonstrate the available tools. The same example is used in the second section as an introduction to the syntax of the language.
