Thank you very much for your addition! In my previous message I was more
(too much?) concentrating on the issue of syntactic extensibility than on
availability of the system.

The full story is that several European research institutes (CWI in The
Netherlands, INRIA in France), Universities (Amsterdam, Darmstadt) and
companies (SEMA-METRA, BULL and GIPSY in France; BSO in the Netherlands;
Dutch PTT; Planet in Greece) over the last 8 years have cooperated in two
European research (ESPRIT) projects: GIPE I and GIPE II, where GIPE stands
for Generation of Interactive Programming Environments.

The result of this research is a system called Centaur, best characterized
as a toolbox for constructing programming environments. The ASF+SDF
formalism I referred to in my previous message has been implemented as
part of the ASF+SDF Meta-environment, which forms part of Centaur.

The distribution of Centaur is done by INRIA (or more precisely by a small
company called Connexite, reachable at the above address).

Correct, but for research purposes it *is* cheap (~150 ECU).

I couldn't agree more, there is no better way to spend your Christmas
