In collaboration with François Pottier (Inria Gallium), Yann Régis-Gianas maintained Menhir, an LR parser generator for OCaml. Yann Régis-Gianas develops the “Hacking Dojo”, a web platform to automatically grade programming exercises. The platform is now used in several courses of the University Paris Diderot. Yann Régis-Gianas develops a reference implementation of a syntactic analyzer for the POSIX shell programming language. This analyzer is used by the Colis project to analyze the scripts embedded in the packages of the Debian GNU/Linux distribution. In collaboration with Beta Ziliani (LIIS, Cordoba, Argentine), Yann Régis-Gianas, Béatrice Carré and Jacques-Pascal Deplaix develop MetaCoq, an extension of Coq to use Coq as a metalanguage for itself.
Yves Guiraud has updated the Catex tool for Latex, whose purpose is to automatise the production of string diagrams from algebraic expressions http://www.irif.fr/~guiraud/catex/catex.zip. Yves Guiraud collaborates with Samuel Mimram (LIX) to develop the prototype Rewr that implements several algorithms developed in the “Effective higher-dimensional algebra” research direction, including the homotopical completion-reduction procedure of .
