First of all I meekly apologize for my almost total silence: quite luckily my family is filling most free time. Yet I'm ashamed to admit that the remnants of free time is stolen by Morpheus. The greek god, not the one from Matrix....
Said that I'm working on Gobject introspection. I was so bold to try to implement GI_OBJECT_INFO the Eiffel (meta)class representing a GObject as a repeated multiple heir of INDEXABLE: over method, fields, properties, signals, interfaces, constants and virtual function.
After battling for a while with several redefinition, undefinitions and renaming I've concluded that I may better just provide iterable-like functionalities....
With this library I hope to quickly provide wrappers for all the libraries having support for GIR (Gobject Introspection Repository): cairo, gdk, gtk, gio, glib and many others.
After that I will move to the rest of GNU libraries, starting with GSL where Raphael already made remarkable work in the past.
After that I got so many work to do if I want to implement my engineering tools in Eiffel; among those at I saw:
A library implementing TLS 1.0 and SSL 3.0 protocols

MPC C library for the arithmetic of complex numbers with arbitrarily high precision and correct rounding of the result LGPLv3orlater
MPFR Multiple-precision Floating-point library with correct rounding.

That's far too much.... I think I will stick to a "eat-my-own-dogfood" attitude, i.e.: writing only Eiffel applications and wrapping the libraries I need that are implemented in C or C++
