Published elj-daily for 29 Jan 2001 - sorry about the 25 Jan and 26 Jan:

  • Some interesting discussion revolving around BON and EiffelCase. Enjoyed this quote: Personally I avoid UML like I avoid OO programming languages without garbage collection, generics, multiple inheritance and contracts

  • Marcio makes another release of yaesockets (portable TCP/IP for SmallEiffel and ISE , Windows or Unix)

  • Got a laugh out of this post Programming Languages as Beverages

  • Sad but true .. Eiffel?! [..]. Eiffel has such negative juice, there's probably been more written about Eiffel than in Eiffel. [ from a Slashdot poster ]

Did post some ideas on a WIN32_HANDLE class.

Clarified some points on the fact that Eiffel is not proprietary language. Wont matter though .. yes, I know Eiffel is a dead in the water B&D language with 3 users and no libraries unlike xyz language.

Received a long email from Steve - an Eiffelist that has finally found SmallEiffel after Visual Eiffel, Squeak, Python and Ruby. He has provided some useful insights which might find there way to elj-daily.
