Grammars for programming languages are complex: two grammar rules can generate an exponential number of source code structures. Programming languages have hundreds of grammar rules. In the context of compiler construction—one language, one grammar, one compiler—this complexity is barely manageable. In the context of IDE construction,refactoring, and reverse engineering it is multiplied by the...
The project aims at a general approach to program restructuring that abstracts from language and application specifics in a well-defined manner. This means that operator suites for program restructuring can be reused for different languages (be it for Java and Cobol and Haskell), and for different restructuring tasks. It also means that the derivation of restructuring tools can be further...
The project facilitates exposition and comparison of approaches and techniques on language processing in a way that is relevant for computer science students, teachers, scientists, and practitioners.
