Eli is a domain-specific programming environment formed by combining a collection of tools that implement powerful compiler construction strategies. In this environment, you can automatically generate complete language implementations from application-oriented specifications. Implementations can be either interpretive and used to invoke the operations of an existing system, or involve translation into an arbitrary target language. Eli has been used to produce translators, program generators, analysers, and interpreters. The user describes the problems that must besolved, and Eli automatically employs the tools and components needed for particular problem.
