My masters thesis was on the implementation of a syntax directed
editor that would parse an Extended BNF definition of a language and
thereafter act as a template-oriented structure editor for the
language. It worked quite well with syntaxes for Pascal, LISP,
SNOBOL and a hardware description language being used as examples.

The thesis was entitled:

        "GED - A Generalised Syntax Editor" by G.S.Moretti,
        Massey University,
        Palmerston North,
        New Zealand, 1984.

The syntax was extended to allow the embedding of prettyprinting

I'm unfamiliar with the procedure for getting hold of a copy of the thesis.
As far as I know, its the sort of thing that libraries have special
arrangements for :-).
