Re: MetaEnvironment and emacs-modes by parser? was Re: [Cute] SDF (Syntax Definition Framework)

From: "andrew cooke" <andrew@...>

Date: Mon, 6 Jun 2005 11:19:11 -0400 (CLT)

I'm thinking of using SDF and Stratego for Otuto2.  I'm working on a
something perhaps best described as a virtual machine - it runs Otuto
programs as a collection of C++ objects, eventually those objects will be
serializable to XML.  The idea is to use SDF and Stratego to go from some
"programming language" syntax to XML, which will then load into the VM
(and XML is streamed across the net to allow distributed processing).

(The C++ code is being developed via UML, which is one reason things
aren't moving so fast - I need to know C++/UML for a job opportunity
coming up in the next year or two...)

Anyway, getting to your question, I think I read somewhere a post from
Martin(?) saying don't use the Debian packages - that the RPMs were the
only things that worked.  I don't know if that was for MetaEnvironment or
something else, but you might give it a try.

I've never used an interactive parser definition tool, so have no idea how
you'd make on eeasier....

Cheers,
Andrew
