This paper presents an overview of an integrated graphic environment called P-GEN(1) to develop applications based on attribute grammars. The system has a modular structure to enable integration of different modules for all phases of the processing of an attribute grammar specification. This environment contains routines for transforming attribute grammar specifications written in different formalisms to an internal representation. The system assists the interpretation of the most important evaluation strategies. The graphic representation of the parse trees and attributed dependency graphs is also supported.
