astview: A GTK-based abstract syntax tree viewer for custom languages and parsers

[ bsd4, deprecated, language, program ] [ Propose Tags ]

Astview is a graphical viewer for abstract syntax trees. It is implemented on the basis of scrap-your-boilerplate (i.e. data2tree) and works with all parsers that generate trees that are instances of the Data.Data class. Custom parsers can be dynamically loaded (via package hint) at startup.

For installation you need gtk2hs and hscolour before. The latter will not be automatically installed by cabal since it is used by Setup.hs.
