Does anyone have a PL/I grammar, ANSI standard would be
nice but any PL/I grammar would be appreciated ...

Failing this, could someone point me in the direction of getting such
a grammar from ANSI themselves, are they on email or does anyone know
their current postal address ??

thanks in advance,

[The PL/I standards are X3.53-1976 for full PL/I, and X3.74-1987 for the G
subset. But ANSI only serves the U.S. Each National Standards Organization
serves as national agent for all of the others, so you're supposed to get
copies of ANSI whatever from your local NSO. By the way, parsing PL/I is
difficult because of the lack of reserved words. Every commercial PL/I
compiler except IBM's is based on the TSI front end which uses a hand coded
parser. -John]
