Kimwitu (pronounced kee'mweetoo) is a system that supports the construction of programs that use trees or terms as their main data structure. It is a meta-tool in the development process of tools. It can easily be interfaced with Yacc and Lex - the idea is that yacc and lex are used to do the parsing, and Kimwitu routines are used to built and manipulate the parse tree. There is also Kimwitu++ (also packaged for Debian) which interfaces with C++ instead of C; its documentation is still a little shaky, so this document might be useful for it.
