Where to start
- You should have basic knowledge of Java and its class path system.
- Download and install E
- Read the Walnut - it is the most concise text on the E language and library.
- Bookmark the ELib api
- Either download the E source or open the e.jar (for example with unzip) and take a look around
- Take a look at the file org.erights.e.elang.syntax/syntax-props-default.txt. It contains information about various language constructs not explained elsewhere at this point. Here is the version of the file included in E version 0.8.37b.
- The source also contains a number of emakers that can be used when developing programs:
- org.erights.e.facet.makeStoneCast.emaker: An implementation of the Walnut/Secure_Distributed_Computing/Capability_Patterns#Facets pattern
