Projects / syntran


In Haskell, data type declarations, Parsec parsers, and HughesPJ pretty-printers very much resemble each other; supplying all three is virtuous, but involves a large amount of code duplication. syntran is a code generator designed to reduce the amount of duplication. Its source is similar to a Parsec LanguageDef-using parser, annotated with the unique information from the data type declaration and the pretty-printer which would normally not be found in a parser. It separates this information out to generate pure Haskell.

    Release Notes: syntran should now build on computers other than the author's. The originally build system used a binary program which was not distributed. The dependency on this program has been removed.
