Hi everyone. Just a small correction. TXL backtracks, though it
might have some optimizations that use lookahead. It does generate
top-down parsers, if that's what you mean.

TXL is a nice tool for translation. Definitely take a look at it.

Graduate student Leon Su and I are working on ANTLRMorph, a rewriting
engine for ANTLR that will support similar declarative concrete text-
text rewriting rules to TXL and ASF+SDF. expect ANTLRMorph this Fall.
