Creating .Net Properties in Eiffel

When C# and VB.Net programmers work with .Net assemblies, they expect to see .Net properties exposed. But Eiffel does not have explicit support for .Net properties. However it is possible to build Eiffel code that when compiled into an assembly will expose attributes as properties. Here is how it is done:

Eiffel Image Embedder

A tool has been developed to allow the embedding of target graphical image files (png, jpg, etc.) directly into an Eiffel executable. This means that the image files no longer have to be included in the application's distribution. See the tool described at:

Object Serialization to a String

The Serialization cluster provides serialization and deserialization to memory. But the memory in question is a C-style buffer, not an instance of Eiffel class STRING. This short tutorial shows how to use the SED classes to serialize and deserialize Eiffel objects to and from instances of class STRING.
