Navigating 'Strategic' programming babel
2012-12-17 10:30:21 GMT
Clearly Haskell has great possibilities in the field of language-processing. And the nuisances associated with little actual computation buried under much data-structure navigation are well addressed by 'strategic-programming' systems.
But now comes the rub -- there seem to be a lot of very similar systems.
Any guidance on which/what/how to choose?
My own current sketchy-patchy knowledge is as below. I would appreciate links/pointers to more substansive literature.
First there was Meertens and his folks working on generic haskell
Did that later become template haskell?
That branched out into strafunski, stratego/xt.
SYB is ___ not sure here: some literature suggests that its identical to strafunski. Some suggests that it is strafunski done more within the haskell language rather than in libraries.
Then there's uniplate. How does it compare to SYB? Or is that a confused comparison?
