CodeWorker is a scripting language designed to produce reusable, tailor-made, evolving, and reliable IT systems with a high level of automation. An extended BNF syntax lets users define new domain-specific languages or parse existing formats, and a template-based syntax lets users write patterns for generating code. The code generation knows how to preserve protected areas with hand-typed code and offers code expansion, source-to-source translation, and program transformation. These tasks are executed in a straightforward process, with no binding to an external programming language and with no translation of requirements specification in a constraining format.
