A colleague and I are involved in a project for parsing large numbers
of rules in a new language he is defining. He's planning to use
javacc as the parser generator.
I would like to store the symbol tables (at least) and hopefully the
parse/lex tables in a database. A downstream goal is supporting
dynamic additions or alterations to syntax and symbols. However, my
other responsibilities prohibit me from doing an in-depth analysis of
the data and perform a thorough data design. So I'm looking for a leg
While I'm reasonably knowledgeable about language/compiler basics, I
certainly don't know if anyone has done this or if there are drafts or
guides for using a database for driving a compiler.
Can someone chime in and let me know?
