CCD is an integrated software tool which is intended to support the coding and debugging for C language. It integrates a hybrid editor, an incremental semantic analyzer, a multi-entry parser, an incremental unparser and a source-level debugger into a single tool. The integration is realized by sharing common knowledge among all the components of the system and by task-oriented combination of the components. Nonlocal attribute grammar is adopted for specifying the common knowledge about the syntax and semantics of C language. The incremental attribute evaluation is used to implement the semantic analyzer and the unparser to increase system efficiency. CCD keeps the preprocessors and comments most regular to make it practical.
