Gnome "I followed the debate about a successor for the C/C++ combination as the primary language for developing the GNOME core desktop platform very closely last month. There has been discussion about a number of options. What I would like to do on this page is give an overview how a probably less well-known language might be a viable compromise as a C/C++ successor. This language is called Eiffel and exists for over a decade. Eiffel takes the principle of Object-Oriented programming to its extremes and, as a consequence, is a very easy to learn language."

They look a lot like exceptions. That's what I keep thinking. And exceptions look a lot like proper c functions which always return a state not a piece of data (although exceptions have an advantage, if function A doesn't catch it, and function B which called A does you're ok). I'm not gonna mention what that looks like in asm, I'm not that experienced with asm.
