    Generic language technology and compiler construction techniques are a prerequisite to build analysis and conversion tools that are needed for the re-engineering of large software systems. We argue that generic language technology is a crucial means to do fundamental re-engineering. Furthermore, we address the issue that the application of compiler construction techniques in re-engineering generates new research questions in the field of compiler construction.
