Which parser generator can handle input files that contain two
bytes-per-character (DBCS)?

[Most of the parser generators I know of expect token codes for input,
not characters. Large character set lexers are a separate and somewhat
more complex issue that's been addressed here before. Extending lex to
larger character sets is tricky because lex uses the character code as
the index into tables, and 256 entry tables are a lot smaller than 64K
entry tables. -John]
