Tiger in Stratego

An Experiment in Compilation by Transformation

Tiger in Stratego is a framework for implementing a compiler for the Tiger language in the program transformation language Stratego. The goal of the project is to experiment with the use of program transformation techniques in the construction of compilers and other language processing tasks, and to illustrate these techniques in education.

The framework is used in two courses at Utrecht University:

In these courses program transformation techniques are studied in the context of compilation and generative programming.

The experiments have lead to a number of techniques for concise specification of program transformations. The following publications use Tiger or components of the Tiger compiler as an example.

The framework is freely available for experimentation:

This web provides an overview of the compiler. The following pages provide different views of the compiler:
