I'm looking for ALL kind of compiler construction tools that may exist.
As I have to write my thesis about these tools, I am supposed to analyze
how they work and to compare check out what can be done with these tools
in order to built a complete compiler.

I have already following tools installed (more or less):
      lex , yacc , flex , bison , ox , rie , ScanGen etc (from Charles Fischer's
book Crafting a Compiler with C) , The Cocktail Toolbox , and PCCTS

I would really be interested in tools that differ somehow from these
,,standard'' ones. Fischer's tools for example do only build tables, no
programme so you have to do them on your own. I can not imagine that all
scanner generators do have regular expression based input languages as
there is no reason why they couldn't use some grammar based.

If you know ANY tool I don't have yet and know where to find it, please
mail me and tell me about. Please include the ftp address and a 1 or 2 line
description of the tool i.e. scanner generator using regular expression ...
If the tool can't be downloaded via ftp, please include snail-mail address.

Please do also include your full name so I can mention you in my these (I
promise I will do that !!).

If there is some CDROM available containing all or most of the compiler
construction tools please do tell me and tell me where to get it from.

Thank you very much,

Alex Weirig
