version 0.0.1 of masterplan, a GPL parser/convertor generator is now
available from

You'll need gcc, bison and flex (or equivalents) to build the executable
and the parsers/convertors.

masterplan allows input in a BNF style syntax,
for instance, the input

a: b* ;

will generate yacc code

    | a b {$$=list_addelement($1,$2)}

and you can use expression syntax with arbitrary nesting like

a: (b [ c d*])+ ;

[I always wondered why nobody'd done an EBNF version of yacc. -John]
