Implementation of Textual Concrete Syntax

  • Ralf Lämmel


This chapter discusses implementation aspects of textual concrete syntax: parsing, abstraction, formatting, and the use of concrete as opposed to abstract object syntax in metaprograms. We focus on how parsers, formatters, etc. are actually implemented in practice, subject to using appropriate libraries, tools, and metaprogramming techniques.
