I want to write a program translator which converts programs from one
computer language to another. I have yacc- based parsers for both
languages. My idea is to modify both yacc implementations to produce
parse trees (physically or conceptually). I would then like to have a
declarative way to specify how parse trees in language A are
transformed into parse trees in language B (but I don't know how to do

I'd appreciate suggestions for techniques, reading matter, and tools.
