||Modularization is one of the common concepts used in programming. Using modularization properly can improve the readability, maintainability and reusability of program. While modularization has been widely used in various programming fields, there are still have some fields where modularization has not been applied, for example source code transformation. Source code transformation can be mainly divided into text-based and structure-based; however, none of them either support modularization in transformation rule, or provide rule reusing methods. Therefore, when making transformation rule, it is difficult to directly see the meaning from the rule, and difficult to reuse the existing transformation rule. In order to solve this problem, we propose a text-based transformation tool called ReModuRutt, which provides modular rule making and easy-to-understand rule making interface. According to our experimental results, this tool is complete enough in terms of functional integrity, modularity, and ease of change. With this tool, users can make better use of existing rules, which can reduce the time spent on rule design, expansion, modification and reference, and make it easier to use source code transformation tools.|
