This paper describes a system for automatically producing complete compiler front ends from simple, nonprocedural specifications of the source language. This system is based on a detailed model of a compiler front end that is presented first. The system itself is then described using a Pascal subset as an example. This work was part of a larger project aimed at producing complete compilers in a similar fashion.
