The GMD toolbox for compiler construction is finally available
via ftp. For details see below. I hope a file server in Germany
works fine for people from outside of Europe.

          toolbox - tool box for compiler construction

          Toolbox is a set of program generators or compiler
          construction tools for nearly all phases of a compiler. The
          compiler construction tools support the automatic generation
          of compilers for imperative programming languages. The
          design goals for this tool box were practical usability,
          significantly reduced construction effort for compilers, and
          high quality of the generated compilers. Especially with
          respect to efficiency the tools are competitive to
          programming by hand. Currently the tools can generate
          compiler modules in the target languages C and Modula-2.
          First realistic applications demonstrate the excellent
          performance of the tools and show that the tools allow the
          construction of production quality compilers.
