Patterns for Domain Specific Languages
A paper about building DSL's. Discusses when and why DSL's may be more appropriate than hard-wired program logic. The main part of the paper covers some useful patterns for the design and implementation of DSL's (e.g., pipelines, source to source transformation).

Are DSL's really so different? Maybe they should have a seperate LtU department. They are usually implemented rather differently that general purpose languages (i.e, they are often interpreter based, optimization is usually weak, unless the optimizations are specific for the domain etc.)
