Abstract or Summary
  • Conversion of software written for one machine or operating system to equivalent software for another machine or operating system is shown to be economically attractive using source-to-source translation. The features of an automatic converter are described using a Pascal-to-C translater as an example. Solutions to the problems of denesting procedures, converting data structures and types, converting control structures and operators, and converting semantics in one language into equivalent semantics in another language are proposed and evaluated in terms of an algorithmic translator. The results obtained through experience suggest that algorithmic translation from one language to another can yield 95 to 99 per cent conversion without human intervention, leading to significant improvements over other methods of software conversion.
