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,
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 :-).
