It can be debated it SmartEiffel is still an Eiffel compiler, now that ECMA-367 was turned into an ISO standard and the SmartEiffel team have clearly stated that they will not implemented the language that is described in the standard. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 129.132.19.15 (talkcontribs) 08:59, 9 May 2006 (UTC).

The whole of the SmartEiffel project seems to have been removed from the servers at LORIA. The SmartEiffel website is just a placeholder page and the link to the Grand SmartEiffel Book is dead. --TristramBrelstaff (talk) 11:22, 23 January 2009 (UTC)

The SmartEiffel project files, including the Grand SmartEiffel Book, are back up again at LORIA. Their disappearance must have just been temporary. --TristramBrelstaff (talk) 09:32, 8 April 2009 (UTC)

Finding posts that shown when the divergence was "officially" announced is surprisingly hard. The comp.lang.eiffel post that make the change more public is easiliy found on http://groups.google.com/group/comp.lang.eiffel/browse_thread/thread/cc742ec021c623bc/819451e8bb5b85a0#819451e8bb5b85a0 . Far more diffulct to find is the post it excerpts which appears to be http://websympa.loria.fr/wwsympa/arc/smarteiffel/2005-04/msg00164.html . It could be argued that http://groups.google.com/group/comp.lang.eiffel/msg/c99c9badb12045bb is more official. 144.32.177.216 (talk) 16:58, 31 August 2009 (UTC)

Transcompiler and ECMA[edit]

  • The compiler translates Eiffel code either to C or Java bytecode.
  • [...] the SmartEiffel project announced that they would not implement the ECMA TC39-TG4 norm.
    • I couldn't find information about ECMA TC39-TG4 on the web, but there is TC49-TG4. Maybe we have a typo here?
