Just a note to announce that ANTLR 2.3.0 has been released.

ANTLR is a complete rewrite of the PCCTS 1.xx parser generator
written in Java that generates both Java and C++ output (thanks to
Peter Wells in the UK).



ANTLR's main features are:

        Grammars may be lexers, parsers, or tree walkers.

        Grammar inheritance: define a grammar as it differs from another.

        Semantic predicates may be specified to alter the parse
        based upon symbol table information or any valid expression.

        Syntactic predicates provide a form of arbitrary lookahead

        LL(k) for k>1 recognizers.

        Oh, and it's public domain with source; not even a copyright.

Best regards,
Terence Parr
