Pattern matching algorithm

Where can I find a description (in symbolic form or much better in 
Mathematica) of the algorithm used to interpret pattern-matching ?

Did anybody try to translate rules:
foo[{}] = 1;

into a function:

foo := Function[L,If[...]]

More generally, is there an interpreter of the Mathematica language core 
in Mathematica or Lisp ?
