GenComp -- A Generic Transformation System

Qiao Chen, Heinz Dobler

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingsConference contributionpeer-review


A transformation system can be viewed as a general case of a compiler. This paper introduces a new concept to generate such transformation systems (e.g., compilers), a so called generic compiler. A first version of the generic compiler is described: GenComp, which is the abbreviation for a generic compiler. It first reads a formal description in form of an attributed grammar and then interprets this description in order to transform an input in the source language to an output in the target language.
