If you think it was a full implementation you might want to go fix that
Wikipedia file on it on the web that I sent out because the author of it
seemed pretty knowledgeable and he seems to think that it has not been fully
implemented in any compiler even as of yet.

I had an Eiffel compiler when I worked for Boeing a few years ago.  I like
the language very much, but it has a Pascal style syntax, which I find a
little wordy.

I used the compiler from Bertrand Meyer's company, which I believe is a full
implementation.  Meyer is the original creator of the Eiffel language.  That
was at least 15 years ago, however, so I don't know much about their current

Meyer has a book titled "Object Oriented Software Construction" that fully
explains the language and provides a great deal of theory on OO design and
such.  The book is a very good read.  Although I read the first edition
while I could still see, I believe the second edition is available in PDF so
it may be somewhat accessible.  Also Meyer has a great many papers available
on the web discussing various aspects of OO design.  I generally regard his
writing as quite readable too.
