A new version of the native Eiffel compiler FEC for SUN/SPARC is
available. This version is a lot more useful for software development
since it now supports runtime checks with comprehensive error messages and
environment files describing Eiffel systems. More information on the
compiler and the downloadable archive is available at


The main enhancements in V0.03 include:

  - Runtime checks for Void references, preconditions, check- and
  - When runtime checks are created, trace code is created by the
      compiler to show the routine call sequence in the case of a
      runtime error.
  - Environment files are used to describe Eiffel systems (loadpaths,
      root creation, level of runtime checks, etc.)
  - Some bugs removed.

I am grateful for everyone who takes the time and tries to use this
compiler and informs me about any problems encountered.
