I found in http://wiki.liberty-eiffel.org/index.php/Configuration_file
reference to the Elate platform which was AFAIK an effort to upgrade the
AmigaOs legacy up "current standards".
If you don't mind I would like to clean both the Wiki and the compiler
of all those legacy platform.
At least I think it's worth to ask ourselves if we shall leave them as
fossilized remains of a previous era or if we shall remove them
altogether, for example from the C runtime.
Speaking of Elate and AmigaOS I'm going to write to Rudi Chiarito who
wrote that support code in first stance. I owe him and AmigaOS at least
this last respectful, nostalgic pity as he introduced me to Eiffel.
Your truly
