A program of this type assists users in designing a shape grammar by providing sophisticated tools for rule construction and development. Some examples of the implementations that have been conducted on shape grammars are listed in Table 1. Gips’s interpreter [1975] enables the user to input a simple two-rule shape grammar; the program then generates two-dimensional shapes. Only polygonal vocabulary elements are allowed in this grammar. The program ignores the issue of detecting sub-shapes. Krishnamurti [1980, 1981-a, 1981-b] did pioneering work on developing data structures and algorithms for solving the sub-shape transformation and rule application problems for two-dimensional grammars.
