Title: EDT - a syntax-based program editor reference manual
Author: Finlayson, Ross S.
Date: July 1983
Abstract: This report describes an experimental syntax-based editor that has recently been developed at Stanford. Syntax-based editors are unlike conventional text editors in that they use knowledge of the syntactic structure of the item (typically a program) being edited, to provide "high level" editing operations. The editor described in this report is currently being used as an editor for programs written in Ada. Other programming languages could also be handled, by replacing the appropriate language definition files by those for another language.
