Model transformations are currently the focus of much interest and research due to the OMG’s QVT initiative. Current proposals for model transformation languages can be divided into two main camps: those taking a ‘declarative’ approach, and those opting for an ‘imperative’ approach. In this paper we detail an imperative, meta-circular, object orientated, pattern matching programming language Converge which is enriched with features pioneered by the Icon programming language, amongst them: success/failure, generators and goal-directed evaluation. By presenting these features in a language suitable for representing models, we show that we are able to gain some of the advantages of declarative approaches in an imperative setting.
