I've gone thru a list of parser generators like yacc and its variants,
antlr, treecc, etc. All of them seem to focus more on speed. However,
for many so called "quick dirty jobs", the requirements are different.

1. Easy to write grammers and tree generation.
2. Easier debugging of grammers (including ambiguous ones)

Any suggestions on which toolkits are better from above perspective.
Also, what kind of grammers would naturally satisfy the above (LL/LR/LALR)
