PortablE is an AmigaE compiler, written from scratch in E, and able to compile itself. It supports Amiga OS3, OS4, AROS & MorphOS.


It attempts to improve on the AmigaE language, and also to make it portable across various OSes. Backwards compatibility was not a top priority, although I feel it is pretty good now.

PortablE is not a traditional compiler, because it doesn't output machine code, or even assembler, but rather it translates your code into another language (not just C++) for a chosen OS (not just AmigaOS). You would then be expected to give the output code to a 'real' compiler.

When PortablE is generating the target code, it tries to preserve most of the formatting & layout of the (original) source code. The aim here is that someone could edit the target code instead, and perhaps even use it instead of the source code.
