Commercial Compilers that Use Attribute Grammars
+ Intel's Pascal compiler
+ The GAG system from GMD in Karlsruhe, W. Germany.
+ Several responses mentioned Rodney Farrow's Linguist system. The
concensus was that this was a tool for building compilers rather
than a compiler itself.
+ Speculation was that compilers from Tartan Labs and MetaWare use
attribute grammar technology.
University Systems (I didn't ask for this but several of the responses
included mention of these which I pass along.)
+ The Cornell Program Synthesizer
+ The University of Lowell L-attributed translator
+ Aparse from the U. of Wisconsin
A public domain attribute pre-processor called PREP which acts as a front
end to YACC was also mentioned.
