Code Generation is the technique of writing programs that write or manipulate other programs. In many cases, this allows programmers to get more done in the same amount of time as they would take to write all the code manually.
This presentation will show how Perl can be used to generate other languages and Perl itselft.
Then, it will be introduced a XML-based application description language, which allows a programmer to describe *what* he wants to produce, not *how* to implement it.
