Some folks were working on this at Cornell, too, and they developed a
nice theory based on attribute evaluation. One of the summary works
was this:


@book{RepsAndTeitelbaum,
  author = {Thomas W. Reps and Tim Teitelbaum},
  title = {The synthesizer generator: a system for constructing
language-based editors},
  year = {1989},
  isbn = {0-387-96857-1},
  publisher = {Springer-Verlag New York, Inc.},
  address = {New York, NY, USA},
  }
[Reps and Teitelbaum's group spun off into a small company called
Grammatech which is still around, in an office across the street from
my church. They sell Ada and C/C++ tools. If your target language is
Ada, you could do a lot worse than to use their stuff rather than
reinventing the wheel. -John]
