An Architecture for an Open Compiler
This is a progress report on an experiment to build a compile-time
metaobject protocol for Scheme. The compilation setting raises issues
not present in runtime oriented MOP's, due to the complexity of the
domain and the coupling between different parts. To address the
complexity of the domain, we have developed a structure that
decomposes the description of an implementation into a combination of
many small, partially interacting choices. To address the coupling,
we have developed a decision making process that allows implementation
choices to be made by a collaboration between user interventions and
default decision making.
