Mike Wiering has made a new Tile Editor. The tiles are used for making sprites, animations and background layers for the 2D Clean games as supported by the game library. When you have made the drawings (or changed the exiting ones of the example games), Clean code can be generated such that the drawings can be controlled in the program.

At the Universidad de Uberlandia in Brasil Alcimar Soares and Ana Abrao made some pretty good notes on the use of CLEAN (and it's underlying principles) including example programs (and a good sense of humour). The notes contain several chapters with examples. The entrance page is Functional Programming in CLEAN. (Pages have been removed.) Check it out.
June 20, 1997
CLEAN version 1.2.4 is now also available for the Macintosh (68k/PowerPC) versions. This version also includes a few fixes for the PowerPC version and some improvements of the CLEAN Integrated Development Environment.
June 18, 1997
The Windows version of CLEAN now runs both on Windows NT 4.0 as well as on Windows '95. A few changes and fixes have been made (CLEANversion 1.2.4).
The Windows95 version 1.2.3 is now available from our site.
CLEAN1.2.3 for the Mac and PowerMac (native) is also available. There are a few changes from version 1.2.
CLEAN1.2 for the Mac and PowerMac (native) is now available from our site.
The system comes in three flavours:
- CLEAN12.68k.sea.hqx: CLEAN 1.2 for 68k Macs.
- CLEAN12.ppc.sea.hqx: CLEAN 1.2 for PowerMacs.
- CLEAN12.both.sea.hqx: CLEAN 1.2 for 68k and PowerMacs.
The 68k version runs on 68k Macs and PowerMacs (emulated) and generates 68k code. The PPC version runs on PowerMacs (native) and can generate 68k code and PPC code.
An interesting aspect of the Mac/PowerPC version is that the CLEAN program development system is written in CLEAN itself.
With the exception of the slight syntax changes for existential types, all changes are extensions or new facilities such that a CLEAN1.1 program will usually run without any change in CLEAN1.2.
A draft version of Concurrent CLEAN Language Report (version 1.2) is available.
The Windows95 version is nearing completion. We are in the phase of internally testing (and debugging) it with various applications.
There are some new versions for you to download.
For OS/2 a version of CLEAN 1.1 is now available. This version no longer needs emx.
Since it seems that most users of linux are now using the ELF distribution we have now produced two versions: the old a.out and the ELF one.
For the Sun versions there are new bug fix releases:
- CLEAN 1.1.2 for Solaris (SunOS 5.x): bug fix release with the following fixes:
-- code generator now generates correct assembly for div and mod with large integer constants -- removed debug trap from io library (no more "get_exposed_area: it happened!" messages) -- fixed linking procedure, clm should now work with Solaris 5.5 on SparcStation4 -- fixed installation procedure, crt object modules are now copied to the clean/lib directory
- CLEAN 1.1.2 for SunOS 4.x: a bug fix release with the following bug fixes:
-- code generator now generates correct assembly for div and mod with large integer constants -- removed debug trap from io library (no more "get_exposed_area: it happened!" messages)
CLEAN1.1 releases for the Mac/68k, Sun/SunOS, Sun/Solaris and PC/Linux are now available. Releases for PowerMac, Linux/ELF and PC/OS2 are in preparation. Releases for PC/Windows95 and PC/WindowsNT are being developed.
CLEAN1.1 for the Macintosh is now available. Releases for other platforms will follow in the weeks to come.
There are some important changes from version 1.0 to 1.1. You can easily convert your 1.0 programs.
The first 5 (draft) chapters of the "programming in CLEAN" book are now available. It is recommended to use them instead of the old two introductory chapters.
The latest version of the draft CLEAN 1.1 Reference Manual is available now in a variety of formats.
We have added a new www page with references to manuals and books on CLEAN. We are working on a new book on CLEAN with lots of case studies showing you how to write real applications. The book discusses the CLEAN 1.1 system (on the net soon) and a CLEAN 0.8 I/O lib (which is already available on all platforms). Some draft versions of some chapters are avaialable now.
