    Are there any good texts or web sites with advice on how to write an
    app
    (in C++) that translates one format input file to another?

    I've got this enormous engineering code that has a gnarly input file
    format.
    My thought is to write a front end for it to allow humans to create
    the
    inputs without having to jump through the hoops that the code
    requires.

    It's not *quite* a compiler, but it's somewhat similar.

    It's easy. Just call the MysteryFormatTranslationFunction and you're done.
