The documentation available for users seems to be a version written a year
and a half ago. This version of the doc is next to useless for serious
development. Amongst other things it does not mention "lazy" rules, it
tells us that the distinct keyword is OK to use (it is in fact
deprecated), it does not mention the "unique" qualifier on a rule.

Does anyone have better and/or more up-to-date documentation than version
0.7.

Frankly if the doc remains this bad the tool is almost useless!

It seems you are talking about ATL.

Could you please remember to prefix the subject of your ATL-related
posts with [ATL]? (see http://wiki.eclipse.org/M2M)


I totally agree with you that something needs to be done about the
documentation.

This is why we started transcribing the ATL User Manual from its current
PDF format to the Eclipse wiki:
http://wiki.eclipse.org/ATL/User_Manual

This new version should be a lot easier to update, and should therefore
be kept up-to-date ;-).


Right now, we would welcome contributions that:
- transcribe sections of the ATL User Manual to the wiki that have not
been transcribed yet (e.g.,
http://wiki.eclipse.org/index.php?title=ATL/User_Manual/The_ ATL_Language&action=edit)
- update the contents with the new features of ATL (e.g., lazy rules)


Best regards,

Frédéric Jouault
