Peter Pfahler und Uwe Kastens. Language Design and Implementation by Selection. In Proc. 1st ACM-SIGPLAN Workshop on Domain-Specific-Languages, DSL '97, Paris, France, January 18, 1997, S. 97-108. Technical Report, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, 1997.
I came across this paper in the bibliography of a paper discussed here yesterday.
This paper is a case study of a system for language design. I think it is fair to say that the system can be seen as a set of "wizards" that help you through the language design process.
The limitations of such an approach are obvious, but I am quite interested in tools of this sort because I want students to be able to experiment with DSL design (as opposed to implementation).
Does anyone have experience with this system, or something similar?
