I think that ideally what you need is the HCF's DD-IDE, an Integrated Development Environment for Device Descriptions. It includes a DD-aware editor, DD object creation wizards, support for tokenizing, building, simulating and executing the DD. It also includes SDC-625, which is a system-independent source code library for access to DDs and field devices by host applications. You include this library in your own application, and make calls to it for the functions you need.
