    Jim Marr asks about grammar-driven compiler test generation. There
actually exist quite a few such systems. I'm most familiar with a
system used in-house at Intermetrics in Cambridge, MA, called the TGG
(Test Generator Generator). This tool has been used to test not only
the compiler as a whole, but also internal compiler phases. Pardon
the mild self-advertisement, but see "Software Practice & Experience",
Jan. 1989, for an article by Bill Homer and myself that discusses our
experience, and gives references to related work.
