Currently, Visual Eiffel uses make for this purpose, which clashes with the ELKS 1995 specification of make.
Feature make_empty is not strictly needed because it can alternatively be written as:
make_filled(0, some_meaningless_character)However, make_empty is more readable and avoids the need to specify the meaningless character. It would also be useful as a default creation routine under proposed language extensions.
