To get an overview in terms of systems, a possible starting point
Bolc L., K. Czuba, A. Kupsc, M. Marciniak, A. Mykowiecka and A.
Przepiorkowski, 1996 A Survey of Systems for Implementing HPSG
Grammars. Technical Report nr 814. Polish Academy of Sciences,
Institute of Computer Science, Warsaw.
As for current parser-based systems, apart from the Lingo/LKB effort
Gregor mentioned, you might want to check out the ALE system of
Gerald Penn at http://www.cs.toronto.edu/~gpenn/ale.html Some
related issues are discussed in my paper "On Implementing an HPSG
Theory" available from http://ling.osu.edu/~dm/on-implementing.html
