Abstract : The problem of automatic (program) generation of compilers was studied; a compiler generation system was specified, consisting of two parts: a 'generation program' and a 'compiler model'. Using this system, a compiler is generated for a given language in the following manner: An abstract specification of the language is written, using the methods and notation developed in conjunction with the system. This specification is input to the 'generation program', which performs checks on the specification to insure its correctness, and then derives a set of data tables from the specification. (Author)
