AspectLISA: An Aspect-oriented Compiler Construction System Based on Attribute Grammars
The use of object-oriented techniques and concepts, like encapsulation and inheritance, greatly improves language specifications towards better modularity, reusability and extensibility. Additional improvements can be achieved with aspect-oriented techniques since semantic aspects also crosscut many language constructs. Indeed, aspect-oriented constructs have been already added to some language specifications. The LISA compiler construction system follows an object-oriented approach and has already implemented mechanisms for inheritance, modularity and extensibility. Adding aspects to LISA will lead to more reusable language specifications. In the paper, aspect-oriented attribute grammars are introduced, and the underlying ideas are incorporated into AspectLISA, an aspect-oriented compiler generator based on attribute grammars. Key words: Attribute grammars, aspect-oriented programming, compiler generators. c 2006 Published by Elsevier Science B. V.
