Generation of graphic language-oriented design environments

Backlund, Björn and Hagsand, Olof and Pehrson, Björn (1989) Generation of graphic language-oriented design environments. [SICS Report]



We review some results in the area of using meta techniques to generate language-oriented programming environments. We focus on environments for languages having a two-dimensional syntax based on attribute grammars and constraints. We introduce edit-semantic attributes, a new classof attributes which control the user interaction and graphic presentation. We present LOGGIE, a prototype tool implementing some of the meta techniques discussed. The tool generates interactive language-oriented graphical editors.
