The best source to understand a (simple) extend-syntax processor and
how to build it is Eugene Kohlbecker's original publciation:

Kohlbecker, E. and M. Wand.  Macro-by-example: deriving syntactic
transformations from their specifications.  In Proc. 14th ACM
Symposium on Principles of Programming Languages, 1987, 77--85.

The most complete description of extend-syntax todate is Kohlbecker's

Kohlbecker, E. Syntactic Extensions in the Programming Language Lisp.
Ph.D. dissertation, Indiana University, 1986.
