EIGHTEENTH ISSUE

This catalog lists products and services for the construction of programming
language compilers and related programming tools. It covers compiler
generators, corresponding grammars, reusable parts of compilers, reusable
parts of other programming tools and related consulting or programming
services.

The catalog provides only technical information. Potential customers have to
inquire at the given address about prices and licensing policies. (For a
catalog of free software see the "Catalog of Free Compilers and
Interpreters".)

All the listed products are available now in a form suitable for production
use. They shall exhibit professional quality and have long term support.

The entries are submitted voluntarily. Apart from tracking complaints about
inappropriate entries no quality control of the entries is applied. Therefore
I do not assume any liability for listed entries.

The catalog is posted monthly on comp.compilers and is available online at
www.transformal.com/CCCP/. Updates are incorporated at least twice a year. If
you want to submit an update send the filled form to cccp@transformal.com.
Updates that do not make use of the form or do not comply with the guidelines
given at the end will not be considered. Entries have to be provided as ASCII
text files according to the instructions given at the end of this document. If
they shall be incorporated into the respective Web pages, they have to be
provided as HTML files as well.

Tool

     Recursive Descent Compiler generator
     RDP

     Features

          RDP takes an attributed very-extended BNF and analyses it for LL(1)
          conformance providing detailed error and warning messages. It
          outputs ANSI C and links against a library of general purpose
          routines that provide set handling, command line switch processing,
          symbol table management and more. RDP is very easy to use.

     Distribution

          All source in ANSI C, compiler-compiler source in BNF, various
          examples. Complete distributions available from
          ftp://ftp.dcs.rhbnc.ac.uk/pub/rdp.

     Platform

          MS-DOS / Borland-C
          MS-DOS / Microsoft C

Tool

     C compiler and related tools
     User Retargetable Development Tools II (URDT)

     Features

          The URDT set includes an ANSI C compiler, compactor, assembler,
          linker, and related tools. It allows you to "roll your own" C
          compiler and related tools. You do retargets by writing text files,
          which are read in by these programs when they run. Please see our
          web page at "http://www.archelon.com" for details.

     Distribution and Platform

          Binary versions available for DOS (32 bit), SunOs 4.x.x, Solaris
          2.x, HP-UX. Source licences available, as well.

Component

     C compiler
     MCC ANSI C compiler

     Features

          You target MCC to a specific machine by writing a text file which
          includes a machine description and code tables. You do not need to
          know compiler internals. The compiler includes output macros which
          allow you to output code for any assembler, as well as our own. Can
          handle a wide variety of machines, including DSPs and microprammable
          machines.

     Distribution and Platform

          Part of URDT (see above).

Component

     Compactor/Scheduler/Optimizing Assembler
     MCPACK Compactor/Scheduler

     Features

          MCPACK gives you a way to implement low level translator tools. It
          reads a control file, which you must write. The control file
          describes the layout of instructions and provides procedures for
          translating input statements into instructions. You may provide
          rules for scheduling and compaction in the file.

     Distribution and Platform

          Part of URDT (see above).

Component

     Assembler
     MCASR assembler

     Features

          MCASR is a "bit-stuffing" assembler, driven from a user written text
          file which describes the fields of the instructions. An instruction
          word can be up to 256 bits wide and may contain multiple relocatable
          fields. Such a field may be set with only a subset of the bits of
          the full address.

     Distribution and Platform

          Part of URDT (see above).

Component

     Linker
     MCLINK linker

     Features

          MCLINK supports up to eight independent overlapping memory address
          spaces, so it can, for instance, easily support DSP architectures
          with X and Y memories.

     Distribution and Platform

          Part of URDT (see above).

Related Services

     AST transformer / walker (source-to-source translation)
     SORCERER

     Features

          A SORCERER grammar describes AST content and structure. You may
          annotate the grammar with actions to effect a translation or
          manipulate the tree itself. Generates recursive-descent tree walkers
          in C or C++ (soon Java). Same flavor/syntax as ANTLR. Not tied to a
          parser generator or any other tool.

     Distribution

          Complete C source code, totally public domain. See WEB for
          dwonload.

     DMS Reengineering Toolkit

     Features

          The DMS Reengineering toolkit enable the specification and automated
          analysis or modification of legacy and/or specification lanaguages.
          The toolkit parses source files to abstract syntax trees, and then
          can carry attribute evaluation for analyses, and/or tree-to-tree
          rewrites to carry out modifications.
          Included are a GLR parser generator (will parse any context-free
          language) to build parser that produces compact ASTs (to allow
          reading very large source systems of a million lines in a single
          workstation), a pretty-printer generator to convert ASTs back to
          printed form, an attribute-evaluator generator, a term rewriting
          system that operates on the surface syntax of the desired language.
          See http://www.semdesigns.com/Products/DMS/DMSToolkit.html for more
          details.
          One can define legacy languages, or take advantage of the wide
          variety of legacy language definitions already made by Semantic
          Designs, including C/C++, COBOL. Fortran, Ada, etc.

     Features

          Fast, incremental construction of interpreters for polymorphic,

          of adhering to fixed syntactic principles. New semantic routines can
          be added incrementally. Commands can be compiled and linked with the
          semantic libraries (experimental).

          The distribution of ULC contains various contributions to languages,
          including a language HTEL that is essentially an HTML-algebra (i.e.
