Date: Thursday, 30 August 2007 12:45
Duration: 40 minutes
Target audience: Any

This talk starts with an explanation of MAD annotated opcode trees. And the
transformation of the opcode tree back into source. These two steps
combined are the Perl 5 to Perl 5 translator.
The talk continues with discussing techniques to extend this to
translating source code, with some concrete examples, and discusses the
limitations of these techniques.
