\begin{blatant plug}
If you get tired of writing all that ugly C++ code when you really want
something like the ML code, you can try


    http://www.cs.princeton.edu/zephyr/ASDL


which takes something like the ML specification an spits out C++ code as
well as a few other things.


module AST {
  symbol = Constant(int i) | Variable(string s, int i)
}


If you throw something like the above at the ASDL tool (asdlGen) you basically
get the same C++ code above with the addition of a "visitor" design
pattern. The web page has a web interface to the tool so you can play
with it online to see what it does.
