New Features of Eli Version 4.1

Previous Chapter Next Chapter Table of Contents


Profile Support dropped

Support of Profiling in Eli had included only the definition of the commandline-switch when calling the C-Compiler. The documentation on profiling-Support in Eli was incomplete in large parts.

Since it is not possible, to automatically determine the correct commandline-switches for support of profiling in the C-Compiler, the support of profiling was dropped int the current version of Eli. If you need to use profiling, substitute the +prof-derivation option with +define='-pg'. For further information on the profiling-support that is built into Odin, refer to the odin reference manual available from ftp://ftp.cs.colorado.edu/pub/odin.

New Specification file-type eta

The type-`.eta'-files serve to assemble include-files just as the `.phi'-files. While the `.phi'-files can be used only, to introduce code into a `.c' or `.h'-file, the `.eta'-files assemble an include-file that can be used throughout the whole specification.

For a description of this file-type, see Descriptive Mechanisms Known to Eli of Guide for New Eli Users.
