  Awhile back I saw a posting for an LALR parser generator written in
modula-2. The sources were to appear in comp.sources.unix, but I have not
seen them. Did I miss them, and if so, does anyone know where I could
obtain the sources (+ any documentation) now? I believe the article was
posted along with promises of a better(faster) LEX type generator and an LL
parser generator.

  As an alternative, is the source code for YACC gernerally available? (No
flames if this is an inane question) [No, it's AT&T licensed code. The source
for Bison, the GNU equivalent, is available all over the place. -John]
