Pylon: a foundation library

Pylon is a small, portable, freeware Eiffel library for data structures and other basic features that can be used as a foundation library by more ambitious or specialised Eiffel libraries.

The first chapter contains a description of the various facilities and explanations on how they are designed and how to use them. The two remaining chapters are the reference part of this documentation, made of the flat-short forms of the concrete classes of the cluster.

The style of Eiffel code followed here and by other libraries of the same author is described in appendix (see section A). It may be worth reading before the other chapters for readers not familiar with these guidelines.
