Working Paper

The Programmer's Apprentice is a highly interactive program development tool. The user interface to the system relies on program text which is generated from an internal plan representation. The programs generated need to be easy for a programmer to read and understand. This paper describes a design for a code generation module which can be tailored to produce code which reflects the stylistic preferences of individual programmers.
