We generate a native pattern language from a context-free grammar. So if we have the underlying grammar of code that needs to be analyzed, or renovated the pattern language conies for free. We use native patterns for recognition and renovation of code. The pattern language is global in the sense that patterns can match entire programs. We illustrate native patterns by discussing a tool that remediates a notoriously difficult Year 2000 problem using native patterns.
