[...C++ grammar that is actually useful?...]
The tool you're referring to is the Purdue Compiler Construction ToolSet
(PCCTS). It's parser generator, ANTLR, deals with 'predicated-LL(K)'
grammars. The feature you were referring to are 'syntactic predicates'.
They make dealing with certain nastinesses of C++ much better. The
'semantic predicates' are of a fair bit of use too. :-) Some nice folks at
NeXT are creating a combined C/Objective-C/C++ grammar/parser using ANTLR
and hopefully they will be able to release the grammar to the public.
The main FTP site for PCCTS is pub/pccts on everest.ee.umn.edu but I
believe there are some mirror sites carrying it as well. You might like to
hop over to comp.compilers.tools.pccts for more information.
Hope this helps,
