A program generator system is a general software tool for producing program generators. The program generator automates portions of the program synthesis process for members of a particular class of programs, allowing the source forms of programs to be more compact and to reflect the conceptual basis of the applications area more directly. This paper explores the design and workings of program generator systems for simulation programming. A generalization of the macro processor is shown to form… Expand

A graded bibliography on macro systems and extensible languages
The segment treated, by no means exhaustively, deals with the spectrum of user-specializable programming systems from macro systems to extensible languages, and literature on the very general processor building and compiler compiler systems is omitted. Expand


Programming Languages: Toward a general processor for programming languages
It is contended that a programming language is best described functionally as a body of macro instructions, and that the macro call constitutes a canonical form in terms of which a programming notation may be described. Expand
SYMPLE: a general syntax directed macro preprocessor
One of the suggested potential uses of this system is that of evaluating new or extended programming languages by the technique of syntax directed macros, which led to the association of the acronym SYMPLE (SYntax Macro Preprocessor for Language Evaluation) with this system. Expand
The compiled macro assembler
This paper describes an advance in the art of writing assemblers. It embodies an idea which has been suggested at least twice, but never actually implemented. In a compiled macro assembler, ordinaryExpand
Syntax macros and extended translation
A translation approach is described which allows one to extend the syntax and semantics of a given high-level base language by the use of a new formalism called a syntax-macro. Syntax-macros defineExpand
Validation of an airport simulation model
An airport simulation model, called DELCAP for DELay CAPacity, for use in estimating the traffic rates attainable at major busy U.S. airports is validated. Expand
