I know that this questions might have been asked a lot of time in this
newsgroup, but I have the problem to choose the right compiler
generator tools for a new project.

I have to develop a compiler for a subset of ANSI C("Mini-C") and I
ask you would tool I should use to build the compiler environment? I
have some experience with PCCTS and its successor ANTLR. But there
might be some other good comiler generators out there. Please tell me
from your experience!

Best Regards

Peter Sprenger

Unless there's something peculiar about your mini-C, why not use lcc
and just rewrite the back end? -John]
