Attribute grammars have proven themselves to be an invaluable formalism for specifying the syntax and the static semantics of programming languages. also they are invaluable for imposing syntax-directed editors, compilers, translator writing platforms and compiler turbines, and any program that has a robust syntactic base. in spite of the fact that, no textbooks can be found that conceal the complete box. To redress this imbalance, anInternational summer time institution on characteristic Grammars, functions and platforms was once held in Prague, Czechoslovakia in June 1991. The direction aimed toward educating the state-of-the-art in characteristic grammars, and their relation to different language specification tools. This quantity offers the lawsuits of the college. The papers are compatible for self-study, and a variety of them can be utilized for introductory classes in characteristic grammars.
