Version 3.3.1 of the Eli compiler construction system is now available
either on magnetic tape or via anonymous ftp (ftp.cs.colorado.edu,, pub/cs/distribs/eli). Complete system documentation is
also available in two formats: Tex dvi format and PostScript. This
release has been tested on the following machine/os combinations (reported
by "uname"):

      Sun3: SunOS Release 4.1 Version 1
      Sun4: SunOS Release 4.1.2 Version 2
      DECstation: ULTRIX Release 4.2 Version 0
      HP 9000/340: HP-UX Release B.08.00 Version B
      IBM RS 6000: AIX Release 1 Version 3

Eli integrates off-the-shelf tools and libraries with specialized language
processors to generate complete compilers quickly and reliably. It
simplifies the development of new special-purpose languages,
implementation of existing languages on new hardware and extension of the
constructs and features of existing languages. A paper describing the
system appears in the February, 1992 issue of "Communications of the ACM"
(pages 121-131).

Version 3.3.1 provides enhanced facilities for modularity in attribute
grammars: symbol computation, inheritance and rule attributes. Rules need
be specified only if they introduce attribute computations. (This
dramatically reduces specification size.) Version 3.3.1 also includes a
new property definition language that allows users to create additional
definition table access operations.
