|Title:||ReFIO: an interactive tool for pipe-and-filter domain specification and program generation|
|Authors:||Rui Carlos Gonçalves|
|Abstract:||ReFlO is a framework and interactive tool to record and systematize domain knowledge used by experts to derive complex pipe-and-filter (PnF) applications. Domain knowledge is encoded as transformations that alter PnF graphs by refinement (adding more details), flattening (removing modular boundaries), and optimization (substituting inefficient PnF graphs with more efficient ones). All three kinds of transformations arise in reverse-engineering legacy PnF applications. We present the conceptual foundation and tool capabilities of ReFlO, illustrate how parallel PnF applications are designed and generated, and howdomain-specific libraries of transformations are developed.|
