EDBG4 is a specially modified AmigaOS4 compatible version of the AmigaE EC compiler and EDBG debugger so that EDBG4 can be used to source level debug an E program running directly on AmigaOS4. Amiga E is a programming language and compiler I started creating for the Amiga in ‘91, released publicly in ‘93, commercially in ‘94, and released as open source in ‘97. It was most similar to C++, in the sense that it was fast and weakly typed, and had a rich set of features from procedural, object oriented and functional programming languages. It features extremely fast compilation, inline assembler, large set of integrated functions, powerful module concept, flexible type-system, quoted expressions, immediate and typed lists, parametric and object polymorphism, exception handling, inheritance, data-hiding, methods, multiple return values, default arguments, register allocation, fast memory management, unification, LISP-Cells, macro-preprocessing, a very powerful source-level debugger, gui-toolkit, library linker, and then some. Amiga E was a tremendous success, it became one of the most popular programming languages on the Amiga.
