Developer's Description

PLM2C is a compiler/translator which accepts PL/M sources files and produces the corresponding ANSI C or K&R C source files ready to be compiled with a C compiler. The resultant C source code embodies the functionality of the original PL/M source code while adhering to modern C coding style. PLM2C is unique in the sense that it provides a context sensitive PLM to C translation and generates C source code that is as readable and clear as the original PL/M source code. This is achieved by mapping simple macro definitions in PL/M to more precise language constructs in C. An example is the mapping of "LITERALLY" definitions to "typedefs" structure definitions when they are found to be used as such. A rule based engine is being employed to find these mappings and augment simple definitions in PL/M to more precise and readable structures in C. The correct mapping is guaranteed and PLM2C produces the corresponding ANSI C or K&R C source files ready to be compiled with a C compiler. Developed and used since 1989, PLM2C was used very successfully to translate numerous large industrial projects of top industrial companies in Europe, Israel, the US and Asia, and with minimum humane intervention. PL/M is a computer language that was designed and proposed by INTEL back in the 70s and the 80s and was widely used due to its good performance on INTEL's processors and its high level syntax. Today PL/M is no longer supported by INTEL and its successor is the C language which is widely used in embedded systems development. Systems that were developed using PL/M are usually being translated to the C language in order to be maintained and evolved. PLM2C presents a very cost effective solution in this transition due to its low cost and high quality of translation.
