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."

I wonder if the Eiffel compiler has a "release" mode configuration (either built in or configurable via switches) that strips out the DBC code after testing is complete...

Yes, that's possible with a single click. I think it's called "Freeze" in EiffelStudio. I don't know if SmartEiffel supports it, though.
