I'd be interested in this also, so please reply to this newsgroup (or
cc my e-mail address). I've not found many references.
My experiences so far have been somewhat enlightening though...I'm
using ANTLR (http://www.magelang.com/antlr) to do some very crude

The AST walker facilities of ANTLR are very nice, and lend themselves
well to such approaches.
