I recently discovered Dave Wile's (at USC, in Southern California) web
pages and his PopArt stuff. I found the HTML form of BNF grammars to
be fascinating. So, I implemented this concept in the Autom Parser
Generator (APG, formerly LRGen).

With the html option, it now generates an ".HTML" file from the ".GRM"
file. If anybody wants to see the HTML file for the Cobol-85 grammar
it has been uploaded to the Autom web site at this page:

I'm currently asking visitors to fill out the survey form and submit
it, in order to get a password, sorry. But I need to know how much
interest there is in this stuff.

I'm thinking about implementing a grammar's complete state machine for
the parser tables in HTML form. Anybody interested in that? Send me
some responses.
