ModSPLan - Modular Specification of Programming Languages
Modsplan implements a universal compiler, driven by language specifications.

Please read the introduction to this project at modsplan.com


Version 0.2.8 of the Modsplan compiler is 1932 lines of pure Python, 
plus 84 lines of specifications used internally. It uses no external libraries.

Modsplan requires Python 2.7
Run "python modsplan/compiler.py" on your command line for usage information.


Simple calculator example

  See modspecs/calc.* for specifications
  Compare with Lex & Yacc example at http://pltplp.net/lex-yacc/example.html

    $ cat sample_source/example.calc
    4 + 2 * -1.5

    $ python modsplan/compiler.py sample_source/example.calc -ot

    Tokens from sample_source/example.calc:

    INTEGER(4)
    ADD_OP(+)
    INTEGER(2)
    MUL_OP(*)
    ADD_OP(-)
    FLOAT(1.5)


    Tree:

          factor
          |  atom
          |     number

          multiplication*
       addition*
