Generates compilers and interpreters in Java

'SableCC' is an object-oriented framework that generates compilers and interpreters in Java. It is based on two design decisions. First, the framework uses object-oriented techniques to automatically build a strictly typed abstract syntax tree. Second, the framework generates tree-walker classes using an extended version of the visitor design pattern which enables the implementation of actions on the nodes of the abstract syntax tree using inheritance. This means a shorter development cycle for constructing compilers.
