Can somebody tell me something about TCS helpers?
I noticed some TCS projects having a Helpers directory containing some
queries. I guess for helping the parse operation?
What about the constraints in the WZR dir?

Andy, thanks for your answer :-).
Alfons, here are some more details to complete Andy's answer:
Basically, a language project includes a metamodel (.km3), a concrete
syntax (.tcs), and possibly some transformations (e.g., to implement the
language in terms of another, like KM32Ecore.atl).
Helpers which may be reused by several such transformations are
generally identified as such in a Helpers folder.
The WFR folder (when existing) contains Well-Formedness Rules, which are
implemented as a transformation from the language metamodel to a Problem
(diagnostic) metamodel. This transformation may be implemented in ATL or
in a specific DSL for such constraints . It can be automatically
executed by TGE, as long as it runs on the ATL VM.

Proceedings of the International Workshop on Graph and Model
Transformation (GraMoT), Tallinn, Estonia. 2005.
