A plan for building renaming support for modelica
We discuss our current work on building an IDE for Modelica, and how we intend to support renaming. Our current implementation of the compiler and the name completion support is done using reference attribute grammars, implemented in the JastAdd metacompilationsystem. For renaming we plan to follow the approach of inverse lookups, developed by Schfer, Ekman, and de Moor. Modelica has challenging naming semantics, providing a good test for this approach.
