Abstract

To face the challenges to tomorrow's software engineering tools, powerful language-generic program-transformation components are needed. We propose the use of attribute grammars (AGs) to generate language specific disambiguation filters. In this paper, a complete implementation of a language-independent AGs system is presented. As a full scale experiment, we present an implementation of a flexible C front-end. Its specifications are concisemodular, and the result is efficient. On top of ittransformations such as software renovation, code metricsdomain specific language embedding can be implemented.
