ANTLR is a recursive descent parser generator from www.antlr.org. You
might find it enlightening to read the draft chapters from Terence's
forthcoming book. One chapter shows exactly what you would write by
hand and then how you can simplify your life by generating that code.
If you download Terence's thesis from that website there are a whole
slew of formal definitions of LL, LR, LALR, etc., mostly skewed to
discuss the issue of linear approximate lookahead.
