Dear All:

I am interested in building a parser for C++. I know from experience and
from looking at Jim Roskind's grammar that yacc style bottom-up parser
generators don't work very well for C++ because of the ambiguities in
the language.

I remember that a while back there was a posting in this newsgroup
of a LL(k) (?) parser generator
tool which allowed one to specify possible productions for a non-terminal,
it went something like this:

this-sentence ?
| that-sentence

I would appreciate any information regarding this tool -- relevant pointers to
other suitable parser generators would also be welcome.
