Nature of problem:
Developing a Monte Carlo event generator for high energy physics requires extensive testing by analyzing its output.
By implementing an interpreter for a special purpose language dedicated to scanning the output of Monte Carlo event generators, recompilation of the FORTRAN-77 program can be avoided. Since the language has special constructs for scanning high energy physics events, the desired analysis can be specified very concisely. The interpreter is implemented by using a parser generator and is therefore easy to maintain and very reliable.
Depending on the application. Comparable to the equivalent straight FORTRAN-77 version.
