The Eiffel compiler creates C code that is then handed to a standard C compiler. As a result, Eiffel programs have a run-time performance comparable to those directly written in C or C++. At the same time, Eiffel is an object-oriented and strongly typed language. EiffelStudio uses a highly efficient compacting garbage collector to free the developer from the burden of memory management.
