Abstract: 
There are several different problem domains in the implementation of language processing tools. The manipulation of textual data when generating code, creation and inspection of environments during type checking, and analysis of dependency graphs during program optimization and parallelization are but a few. The use of domain specific languages to solve these sub problems can reduce the complexity of a tools specification. We argue this point in the realm of attribute grammars and use domain specific meta languages to write attribute definitions.
