    I would like to mention one more source of information from the famous
series "Lecture Notes in Computer Science". IIRC, it is being called
"Source-to-source translation" or "Grammar Inversion and Source-To-Source
Translation" nevertheless it has a lot of interesting ( but probably
old ) approaches to the topic.


P.S. Consider this as my 2 cents. :)
