For some time now I've been looking for a compiler-compiler which does
NOT generate C source code (or C++ or any language where the user
needs to have a compiler and linker). I have no particular need for
many standard features such as high speed/optimisation/data flow
analysis etc; the main purpose is text transformation and awk-like
speeds are quite adequate.
I am aware of TXL. It goes close, but you can't control the lexer,
which is bad. I am aware of a yacc derivative which generates Perl.
I'll use that if there is nothing better. Thanks in advance for any
( David Bennett Heisenberg probably rules, OK! )

don't want the code, it's easy enough to strip out. -John]
