The RAND Compiler Kit (RACK) was developed as part of the RAND Translator-Generator Project. RACK is a "next-generation" tool for use in developing advanced programming languages and interfaces. RACK supports the generation of the lexical analysis, syntax analysis, and code generation components of a translator. RACK is UNIX-based, implemented in C, and integrated into RAND's Sun workstation computing environment. RACK translators interface to programming languages commonly used within RAND, such as C and LISP.
