I'm hunting down a "pre-built" grammar for PCL and / or other printer
I'm also evaluating the appropriate scanner/compiler to do this in. Of
course, flex/bison is on the list. Also SandStone's Visual Parse++ and
The goal is to take an HP/PCL "grammar" and compile it into a different
language (or a cross compiling effort).
Does anybody have an experience on this topic or any advice (pro/con
regarding the tools I'm looking at) ?
[Unless you want to parse the optional embedded pen plotter language,
the syntax of PCL is awfully simple, with the interesting part being
the semantics. You hardly need yacc. -John]
