I documented a small collection of Eiffel idioms in a corner of my wiki. I noted that they are frequent in Eiffel code from experienced programmers, but that newcomers to Eiffel usually don't know them, and tend to do the same things in suboptimal ways.
Some of them come from code I have read, others from examples in ETL2 and OOSC2, and others from recent posts to comp.lang.eiffel. The list is very short and I am sure I have missed a lot of commonplace idioms, but hopefully it will grow in the future.
