    Eiffel Tutorial

    Does anyboy know of a straight forward more traditional tutorial for learning the basics of Eiffel? All I can find are these 'tutorials' going on about the theory behind it, and giving abstract peices of code that do nothing when run. I'm looking for a nice traditional tutorial that gives a peice of code you can run, explains then gives another peice of code with more language features (that can run and do something) and so on. I have searched google, devshed and this forum and I can't find any tutorials like that (even the wikipedia tutorial is quite abstract and gives no code meant to be run and played with).

    Besides google hits like this one, my only suggestion is the list of books in this Eiffel FAQ:

    Note that I've never programmed in Eiffel myself, although I do have the installer for the interpreter (?).
