Parsing and refactoring FORTRAN code with XMLPhilippe Marguinaud
In this article, Philippe Marguinaud explains how XML can be used to parse a language such as FORTRAN. The first big advantage over other existing approaches is that XML can represent both structure and hand-written content. The other benefit is that all power tools coming from the XML realm become instantly available for searching and editing the syntax tree. Eventually, the article shows how a FORTRAN syntax tree can be loaded in Firefox, using an XSL stylesheet.
