One of the main concerns of the Gobo Eiffel Project is to provide the Eiffel community with free and portable Eiffel tools and libraries. You might want to read the following files before downloading the latest version of Gobo Eiffel:

Latest and older versions of Gobo Eiffel can be downloaded from SourceForge. The package has been split into two parts. The source code is available in files of the form:
- Windows: gobo*-src.7z
- Unix/Linux: gobo*-src.tar.gz
The source code is also available from the Git repository on GitHub. They contain everything except the binary files of tools (e.g. gec, geant, geyacc). You can either built them from the source code using one of the following commands:
- Windows: %GOBO%\bin\install.bat <c_compiler>
- Unix/Linux: $GOBO/bin/install.sh <c_compiler>
where <c_compiler> is a C compiler installed on your computer (for example use msc for Microsoft C compiler or gcc for GNU C compiler). You can also download the file of the form:
corresponding to your platform if it is already available. In such a case you just have to copy the binary files into the directory $GOBO/bin.
A list of the known defects along with eventual bug fixes or workarounds is available in the issue tracker on GitHub (an older bug tracker is available on SourceForge). If you find a bug which does not appear in this list yet, please report it. We will try to provide a bug fix as soon as possible (usually within one or two days).
There is a mailing list (hosted at SourceForge) for discussions about the features under development in the Git repository on GitHub. You can subscribe and take part to the discussions or ask your questions there.
Although the license allows you to do pretty much whatever you want with this software, we would be grateful to get your feedback, bug reports and/or bug fixes, improvements, etc. so that others could benefit from your work and ideas as well. We would also be interested in hearing about your projects and how easy (or difficult) it was to adapt this software for your specific needs. Thank you in advance.
You are also welcome to take part in the development of the Gobo Eiffel Project. Some developer guidelines are available to help you make the first steps.
