MSVS C++ compiler:Visitor/iterator patterns and tree parsing

  1. Nov 4, 2013 #1
    While creating the compiler, did they use these patterns to process the syntax/grammar trees ? I use MSVS C++ as a specific example, it can be any compiler in general.
    Thank you a lot.

    Given that this compiler is not open source, even if somebody told you the patters were or were not used, you would have no way of verifying that and studying whatever details might be of interest.

    I suggest you pick some other target for your research.
