My company is developing new version of our PLC and I am supposed to make IDE for that.
Our previous IDE is out-of-date and completly not flexible and I am thinking of something brand new.
Now our PLC is running program written in some kind of custom C-like language (lets call it CQUASI) which is converted into controller's virtual machine language (lets call it VML).
I see that Xtext is pretty usable when it comes to encoding textual->textual language output.
What about managing binary output as a language?
or maybe there is a different Eclipse framework/set of plugins to do so?

I think I'll use Xtext to make a
CQUASI -> VML converter
ladderlike lang -> CQUASI
Has anyone worked with ladder like lang to use it with xtext?

what you do with the Xtext models is up to you. There are standard hooks for creating text files from a resource. That does not mean that nothing else is possible.


Need training, onsite consulting or any other kind of help for Xtext?
