SECG: The SCOOP-to-Eiffel Code Generator

By: Oleksandr Fuks, Jonathan S. Ostroff, Richard F. Paige

Abstract

The Simple Concurrent Object-Oriented Programming (SCOOP) mechanism introduces inter-object concurrency to the Eiffel language, via addition of one new keyword, separate.We describe a general tool that takes a Eiffel program that uses the separate keyword and translates it into an Eiffel multi-threaded program that uses the Eiffel THREAD class. The resulting code is thereafter compatible with EiffelStudio and any other Eiffel compiler that provides the THREAD class.
