Tag: compiler Author: mysound Date: 2009-12-21

Is there any alternative to flex and bison (lex/yacc) combo? Any other tools that let specify a language grammar in BNF?

Thank you Eddie and Mitch.

A couple of options:

Antlr: http://www.antlr.org/

If you're using C++, Boost::Spirit: http://www.boost.org/doc/libs/1_41_0/libs/spirit/doc/html/index.html

I really like Boost::Spirit's approach to this problem. I won't even have to leave Visual Studio :)
