Abstract : TRANGEN is a computer system for writing compilers. TRANGEN systems have been implemented on the IBM-7094, CDC-1604, and GE-635, and have been used to write translators for PL/I, ALGOL, FORTRAN IV, and TRANDIR. TRANDIR is the TRANGEN user language which has pattern matching and action primitives found useful for compilers. This report serves as a user's manual for TRANDIR/TRANGEN on the M460 Univac computer. In this implementation, several on-line debugging features are emphasized as well as the modifiability of TRANDIR through re-bootstrapping. (Author)
