LIDO - Reference Manual

$Revision: 4.34 $

This is a reference manual for LIDO, a language for the specification of computations in trees. It is used to specify all computations of the analysis phase and the translation phase of a language processor, which are to be executed on the abstract tree. The main purpose of a LIDO specification is to describe which computations have to be executed in which tree context, how those computations depend on each other, and which values are propagated from one computation to another. The functions called in computations and the types of propagated values are implemented in C; those implementations are not part of a LIDO specification.
