Example of testing a text inclusion - a C++ comment - in the TextTransformer IDE step-by-step

Example of testing a text inclusion - a C++ comment - in the TextTransformer IDE step-by-step

The abilities of TextTransformer for the analysis of texts are increased by the new possibility to parse text inclusions with separated parser sub-systems. Exemplary examples of text inclusions are comments in programming languages or XML processing instructions. Innumerable further possible applications for the new feature are conceivable.

More and more frequently comments not only are used for a freely arranged internal documentation of programming code, but structured comments are used e.g. for the automatic production of an external documentation. Or content management systems use hidden markers in the comments, to produce a uniform web site design. To parse such embedded instructions, a sub-parser is needed, which has to be different from the main parser of the document. Two or more parsers can be combined in a single project in the TextTransformer.

It is the common feature of comments and other text inclusions that they can appear in the text everywhere without destroying the complete structure of the text. TextTransformer generalizes the principle for the treatment of comments: it is possible in different sub-structures of the text to allow different inclusions and it is allowed too, to stack inclusions. (Nested comments are the simplest example of stacking.)

In the visual development environment of TextTransformer you can test such sub-parsers in the same manner as used for the productions of the main parser: you can step through the nodes of the syntax tree, you can set breakpoints in the tree or in the source text and you can execute text transformations on single files or on groups of files.

Parsing the text inclusions is made possible among others by a new, systematic concept for the change of lexical states: Text inclusions can be parsed with token sets, which are different from that of the main parser. This concept was extended to the other uses of productions already existing in the TextTransformer. Look-ahead productions, and productions for sub-parsers, callable in semantic actions, also can operate on own token sets now.

TextTransformer does thus more than an ordinary parser generator: it produces not only a parser but also a whole system of parsers.

Versions, prices and availability:

The standard version (with transformation manager and extended interpreter) can be downloaded as a 30-day trial version under . As soon as the test period has passed, the functionality is adapted to the free version.

With the professional version of the TextTransformer a ready transformation program can be exported as c++ program code and so included into other software products. So the core of the TextTransformer is bootstrapping self.

The standard version costs $ 98 and the professional version costs $ 394, both availably under .

In the free version the features of the standard version are restricted, however, it has almost all possibilities of analyzing texts and carrying out simple text manipulations. It can be downloaded here:

Further information about the versions, the PDF manual etc., you find at:

Further technical details on the IDE, the parser-generator, the interpreter, the debugger or code production (only the professional version) you find at:

Pictorial material like product logo and screenshot is in our press area under provided for you.

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

Marketing: text type versus specialisation
Marketing: text type versus specialisation There are two types of marketing translations: on the one hand, there is the specialised variety during which marketing is considered objectively as a corporate field. On the other, there is marketing translation in the sense of transcreation. In other words: a marketing expert well-versed in economic principles and terms cannot automatically produce good texts or creative translations! And conversely, a translator capable of delivering hard-hitting copy
