The GCC XML Tree Node Introspector project consists of a patch to the gcc compiler to output the internal compiler tree nodes in RDF/XML and programs to process that RDF/XML. The tree nodes are complex data structures which represent the source code inside the compiler. Through these tree nodes, users are able to extract information from their programs that would be otherwise very difficult to obtain. Modules exist to store these nodes in Redland RDF using a Berkley database. The long-term goal of the project is create a high-level API that will make the programmatic manipulation of programs easier than it is now.
PXSL ("pixel") is a convenient shorthand for writing markup-heavy XML documents. It provides XML authors and programmers with a simple, concise syntax that they can use to create XML documents. For more advanced users, it offers customizable shortcuts and sophisticated refactoring tools like functional macros that can markedly reduce the size and complexity of markup-dense XML documents.
CDuce is a programming language adapted to writing safe and efficient applications that manipulate XML documents. A type system checks at compile time that applications deal with all the possible inputs and produce only valid outputs. Pattern matching is a powerful operation based on regular expressions to inspect documents. CDuce also features general-purpose features; it is a higher-order functional language, with a type-safe interface with Objective Caml.
