Visual analysis of texts

Visual analysis of texts

The possibilities for the visual analysis of texts have been extended to the look-ahead analysis in the TextTransformer 1.4.

TextTransformer is a development environment for the analysis and automatic evaluation and remodelling of texts. At the analysis of a text disambiguation, i.e. the choice between alternative interpretations, can depend on sections of text which follow at later positions. E.g. the meaning of a letter can depend on the signature, or the existence of a semicolon can qualify the code being in front of it in a programming language. Such a look-ahead can be debugged now as well as it was possible till now only at the current position. A special button or shortcut starts look-ahead debugging, afterwards the same commands can be used to single step over or into productions, as in the mainstream debugger.

Now it's also possible to step backwards in the debugger, from a breakpoint or error condition. This backtrace allows to find out how this state was reached, without restarting the parser, and eliminates the need for writing specialized test cases, which otherwise may be required to reproduce a certain error condition.

These new debugging facilities were developed in connection with a big project carried out successfully: a parser for the programming language C++ has been built for the preparatorily translation of approx. 120000 lines of source code of a company software into Java code.

TextTransformer is specialized on all kinds of text remodeling: text analysis, text extractions, text replacements and text conversion: e.g. log file analysis, data file conversions, source to source translations etc.

Delphi2Cpp 1.2.0: converts Delphi code for compilers like Visual C++ or gcc now …
The program Delphi2Cpp was made to convert Delphi code to C++. The extended C++ of the CBuilder compiler was the primary target of the first version of Delphi2Cpp, which was published three months ago. With the new update this limitation is overcome, because optionally Delphi properties can be eliminated now. The use of "properties" is a fundamental language feature of Delphi, that makes it difficult to translate it to C++. Only
Delphi2Cpp 1.0.0: Converter from Object-Pascal (Delphi) to C++
The program Delphi2Cpp just has been released, which helps to translate the proprietary programming language Object Pascal - also called Delphi - into the widespread programming language C++. Delphi2Cpp saves all purely mechanical syntactical substitutions and rearrangements of the code in which the largest portion of the translation consists. A lot of more complex translation steps are executed too. However, in most cases a manual post-processing of the produced code will
TextTransformer 1.6.0: conversion of binary files
With TextTransformer 1.6.0 easy development of programs for the processing of binary files is possible now. This is possible because source files can be shown now not only as normal text, but as a binary text and in hexadecimal form too. Binary files are frequently used for the compact storage of data and - opposed to text files - contain many characters which aren't shown in a normal editor. These data
Conversion of arbitrary file formats to XML
TextTransformer supports XML as target format in a special way now. XML is of an eminent importance as it is a widespread standard for the exchange of data between different programs and systems. Moreover, further transformations can be done with XML files by means of XSLT. Therefore it is desirable to be able, as simply as possible, to convert arbitrary file formats to XML. With TextTransformer parsers (text-analyzer) can be

Medos Medizintechnik AG gets a visual makeover
The changes that came with the company's newly-defined strategic focus are now clearly visible for the world to see. Medos presented its complete design makeover for the first time at the 25th Annual European Congress of Cardiac and Thoracic Surgeons (EACTS) in Lisbon in early October. The redesign is a logical consequence after the company’s repositioning. "We want Medos’ new, clear strategy to be reflected in our corporate design,"
