Abstract

We propose a message processing system for handling multiple message formats and message parsers. overview The system is based around an abstract messages and abstract message type definitions. These are presented to programs via a standard message interface and associated message type interface. The system permits multiple parsers, each of which implements the given message interface and message type interface. (The word 'parser' is used loosely here to include all the functions defined in the interface: message construction, parsing, and editing.)
