I'm working on modernizing Rosetta Code's infrastructure. Starting with communications. Please accept this time-limited open invite to RC's Slack.. --Michael Mol (talk) 20:59, 30 May 2020 (UTC)


From Rosetta Code
(Redirected from EC)
This programming language may be used to instruct a computer to perform a task.
Garbage collected: No
Parameter passing methods: By reference, By value
Type safety: Unsafe
Type strength: Weak
Type compatibility: Nominative
Type expression: Explicit
Type checking: Dynamic, Static

Listed below are all of the tasks on Rosetta Code which have been solved using EC.
Your Help Needed
If you know EC, please write code for some of the tasks not implemented in EC.

eC (Ecere C) is an object-oriented language derived from and compatible with C designed and developed by Ecere Corporation. It aims at being fast, light and easy to write.

It is supported by a cross-platform runtime library including its own GUI toolkit, 2D/3D graphics engine as well as networking support.

The Ecere SDK is completely free and includes a full-featured Integrated Development Environment as well as a compiling tools for the eC language.

Some of eC Features

  • Full C compatibility (Only exception: few additional reserved keywords such as 'class')
  • Object-oriented class definitions supporting single inheritance
  • Per instance virtual methods
  • Import feature removing the need for header files
  • Properties
  • Automatic conversions
  • Context sensitive enumerations
  • Component object model enabling dynamic lookup of classes, methods, objects serialization and broking, runtime code class aggregation

Sample Code[edit]

Properties & Conversions in eC

class Pen
   Color color;
   public property Color color
      get { return color; }
      set { color = value; }

// Example Usage
Pen pen { red };
Pen pen { color = red };
pen.color = ~pen.color; 
pen.color += 10;
pen.color.r = 255;
pen.color = 0xFF0000;
pen.color = { 255, 0, 0 };
pen.color = ColorHSV { 0, 100, 100 };
pen.color = ColorLab { 53, 79, 66 };
pen.color = ColorCMYK { 0, 100, 100, 0 };
