The object oriented programming paradigm has been applied to the development of syntax-directed structure editors. The principal features of our implementation are presented, which is derived from a grammar for structured control flow documents. Experiences we gained show that object oriented programming is a valuable programming paradigm, in particular with respect to software reusability and maintainability.
