Programs that write programs


hey, I ran across your post randomly and checked out cog. Code generation is definitely useful and fun. These days Java programmers can use Eclipse for all sorts of code generation magic, mainly stubs. GUI builders also do well. In both cases, the generated code *is* treated as the source; the generator being the development environment and its standard generation tool. Obviously these tools are much more limited than embedding python, but they are popular for hitting 90% of the need.

What are your thoughts on the IDE front?
