Re: [abc-dev] Extension of abc

I don't think this is implemented. Some AST nodes may have reasonable
prettyprint methods, but we're a long way off being able to produce a source
representation of a complete AST.

The conversion to Java source that you refer to is simply done by the Dava
decompiler; to the best of my knowledge there is no decompiler for AspectJ.

What exactly are you trying to achieve? Maybe we can help in some other way...
