SNIP: A Programming Power-tool - SNIP takes in an IDL and uses it to create code according to code patterns

SNIP is a programming power-tool for generating code from rules, or "code patterns" (AKA idioms).

Sr. software engineers have often noticed patterns in their coding practices. SNIP allows those patterns to be captured and expressed in an executable template.

An IDL-like input form is used to define objects. That IDL is then applied to the template to create code that a user would normally have typed in by hand.

For more information, and an example, see the site that describes SNIP more fully at http://www.ultranet.com/~advsw
