I have developed a parser for a query language in yacc,
and I would like to port it to a more sophisticated tool.
I would like to have an EBNF tool with ability to generate AST's
automatically. Also I want to have a clean grammar - I don't want
to rewrite it to fit LL(1) or something weak like that (I am not sure
my grammar is in LL(1) actually). Could you recommend a tool that would
fit the above? (should be close to the power of LALR, have EBNF,
ASTs, work with Java, hopefully generate HTML pages for the grammar ala
JavaCC, efficiency is the last concern).

Thank you very much,
Pavel Velikhov
