The paper describes the application of automatic program generation methodology in generating file conversion programs. The system, accepts as input descriptions of source and target files in a Data Description Language (DDL) and data manipulation specifications in a Data Manipulation Language (DML). It produces as an output a conversion program in PL/1 capable of converting the source file and producing the target file. 
An overview of a system for automatic generation of file conversion programs
TLDR
The structure, system design, capabilities and applications of the DDL/DML language and processor are described, including an illustrative example. Expand
Research on Automatic Program Generation
TLDR
This technical report contains a collection of three papers intended to summarize the results of past research and the direction of current research, to provide software generation directly from user specifications. Expand
EXPRESS: a data EXtraction, Processing, and Restructuring System
TLDR
This paper describes the design and implementation of EXPRESS, an experimental prototype data translation system which can access a wide variety of data and restructure it for new uses driven by two very high level nonprocedural languages. Expand

TLDR
The relation between data base translation and application program conversion is described, the program conversion tasks and their possible automation are identified, and a semi-automatic approach to the conversion problem is proposed. Expand
A General Methodology for Data Conversion and Restructuring
TLDR
This paper describes these two languages, DEFINE and CONVERT, and gives numerous examples to show the capabilities of these languages and how they can be used in data conversion and restructuring. Expand
The ADAPT System: A Generalized Approach Towards Data Conversion
TLDR
The ADAPT (A Data Parsing and Transformation) system provides an efficient generalized language driven approach towards data translation. Expand
A General Methodology for Data Restructuring Conversion and
This paper presents a methodology and a model for data conversion or translation. The model assumes that both source and target systems are available and that conversion interfaces may be required toExpand
Implementation of a prototype generalized file translator
The design of generalized data translators, particularly in the area of data base translation, has been the subject of much research in recent years. The practical application of this research hasExpand
Generalized software for translating data
TLDR
The University of Michigan Data Translation Project has developed a generalized translation methodology that has been applied in the development of several prototype data translators and has progressively advanced the physical transformation capabilities (reformatting) and the logical Transformation capabilities (restructuring).

Methodology for transferring programs and data
TLDR
The paper presents an overview of current and proposed solutions to the problems of incompatible programs and data between dissimilar computer systems and different approaches to data translation. Expand

TLDR
The specification of separate Data Description and Data Manipulation Languages is significant in that it allows databases described by the Data Description Language to be independent of the host languages used for processing the data. Expand
An approach to data description and conversion
TLDR
The aim is to understand data structures by developing a model which not only characterizes current data organizational techniques, but also provides a framework within which new data structures can be defined. Expand
