Fermat Transformation System

Program-Transformation.Org: The Program Transformation Wiki
FermaT is developed by Software Migrations Ltd, based on the work of Martin Ward (Martin.Ward@durham.ac.uk). FermaT is an industrial strength program transformation system targeted at reverse engineering, program comprehension and migration between programming languages. The system is currently being used to translate IBM 370 Assembler modules into equivalent readable and maintainable COBOL programs. (Why COBOL? Well, that's what the customer wanted, and he is paying the bills!)

For more information see Language Oriented Programming, by M. Ward. This system is based on The Maintainer's Assistant, which can be downloaded. The FermaT Transformation Engine, the result of over 15 years of research and development in program transformations and reverse engineering, has been released as free software under the GNU GPL. It is available for downloading from Martin's home page.
