I've just finished a yacc-lookalike. I might have been able to use

Anyhow, I too am puzzling over a name.
I used "Molly McYacc" as a working title. But I think I'm going to
go with "jaccl", sort of following through on the wild mammal motif.
It stands for "just another compiler-compiler lookalike".
Either that, or perhaps Mr. Corrbet will allow me to use the second best
