  ***** This is to announce the release of EiC version 3.7 ******

EiC is a freely available pointer-safe, bytecode C interpreter, it is
released under the "artistic licence", and has three main modes of
operation: (1) interactive mode - via immediate statements to standard
ISO C and POSIX.1 functions, (2) non-interactive mode and (3)
scripting mode - for running shell scripts. Because each mode uses the
C programming language, it provides a seamless way of moving from one
programming task to another.

It comes with its own built in C preprocessor and a set of modules
for interfacing to gnuplot, XV and for CGI programming.

Its banner-free website is:
