Hello NG,

in my student research project i got the task to
compare compiler-compiler generators like Antlr or JavaCC.

To do that, one suggestion from my tutor was, to
write a tool, which automatically generates a random grammar
( in bnf or ebnf or other format ) from a given/chosen alphabet.

So now my question : has anybody heard of such work before?


[We've seen sentence generators that generate random source code from
a grammar, shouldn't be any harder than that. -John]
