SmartEiffel Contributors



*** Frank ARNAUD: bug report of test_tag1.e. Reported a problem with Windows NT / Microsoft C / empty struct. Reported a bug about renaming/redefinition of Eiffel externals. New maintainer of the Eiffel FAQ.
*** Eric BEZAULT: lots of really good (short!) bug reports: rename/select, statically computed expressions, weird uses of inheritance clause, insisted to give SmartEiffel a -case_insensitive flag...
*** Xavier CREGUT: has been using SmartEiffel for a long time. Many bug reports. Reported in a very small program a tricky bug dealing with inheritance/genericity and VNCG rule.
*** Geoff ELDRIDGE: since many years, Geoff is one of the best SmartEiffel's supporter thanks to the excellent elj-win32 distribution. Keep up the good work Geoff ! As a side-note, Geoff is also the initial designer of the BASIC_TIME class.
*** Enrico GOBBETTI: many (excellent) bug reports and many good bug-fixes .
*** James GRAVES: initial design of exception handling, on which we based our final implementation. Maintainer of SmartEiffel's RPMs for RedHat Linux.
*** Alain LE GUENNEC: many well-isolated bug reports plus some very good bug-fixes.
*** S.u.S.E. GNU/Linux: since mid-1998, the S.u.S.E. GNU/Linux distribution is our main development OS. Indeed, we have already received for free all versions from 4.3 to 7.3. Also note that SmartEiffel The GNU Eiffel Compiler is part of the S.u.S.E. GNU/Linux distribution. We are grateful to S.u.S.E for being very supportive to us. We hope the S.u.S.E. GNU/Linux team will keep up the good work, being successful and providing us with free copies of their distribution ;-)



** Reimer BEHRENDS: isolated a bug about once pre-computed functions and many other bugs.
** Nigel BREE: fixed a tricky bug in the runtime stack. Improved portability for Windows95/NT. Wrote the install script for Windows95/NT.
** Thierry DE CARVALHO: found a bug in inspect/when. Fixed a bug in STD_FILE_READ.connect_to.
** Emmanuel CECCHET: updates of the Linux executable. Found some bugs in creation calls. Provided a lot of useful comments.
** Valery CROIZIER: reported bugs (in very numerous mails :-). Provided hints to optimise the C code.
** Andre DOHERTY: used to maintain the SmartEiffel ready for OS2 version.
** Antoine GUARRIGUES: worked with Philippe RIBET.
** Wai-Ming HO: many well-isolated bug reports, plus one tricky Garbage Collector bug with fix.
** Jean-Marc JÉZÉQUEL: reported some bugs on ARRAY inheritance. Isolated a bug on VNCG. Beta testing.
** Alexander KJELDAAS: fixed a bug in INSTALL.CSH. Reported a problem with mixed rename/redefine and a problem with run time stack.
** Philippe LAHIRE: reported some bugs with repeated inheritance. Isolated some problems with select.
** Antony LE LABOUSSE: worked with Cyril ADRIAN.
** Greg Lee: many good bug reports and many patches and needed updates, mostly related to Java byte-code generation.
** Jean-Lin PACHERIE: many bug reports.
** Marc SCALZOLARO: reported some bugs and added some tests for expanded class types.
** Fridtjof SIEBERT: for some well isolated bug reports.
** Glen STONE: improved the type inference score as well as code generation (more dispatch functions are now removed). Also sent some good bug reports.
** Brian STRELIOFF: reported some bugs. Gave me some good hints about compatibility with C++ and warning messages of gcc.
** Jerome THOEN: author of some (optimised) features to avoid memory leaks.
** Dan WILDER: uploads new versions of SmartEiffel to sunsite (for Linux).
** Richard WALKER: promotes the use of SmartEiffel at the Australian National University and helps us to improve SmartEiffel's documentation.
** Alan ZIMMERMAN: clear bug report with an excellent fix for the exception trace. For one aspect, the problem was specific to the CYGWIN compiler and its implementation of longjmp. The second bug was related to the unwinding of exception trace immediately before a polymorphic call.
