I'm involved in the rewrite of the company's legacy code from Modula-2
Since there is much to translate I think it's better to embark on a
metaprogramming project and try to devise means of automate inasmuch as
possible the code migration, howewer I'm new to compiler technology.
I would like to know what would be the main stages one should obey to
produce a source to source translator from Modula-2 to Java.
I just downloaded PCCTS2.0a and JCC, are those tools a good start for
such an enterprise ?

translated code isn't all that hard, but making the translated code
legible and maintainable is quite difficult. -John]
