Re: Icon

While we're at papers and things, this whole generator stuff is easily
embedded in a language .. with macros. Take a look at Schelog, an embedding
of Prolog into Scheme. That gives you most of the power of Icon's
generators already, because you can embed Scheme in Prolog and vice versa
... which brings us back to Olin's invited talk: build and embed your
little languages. 

With call/cc and macros, you get Icon for very little effort.
