I have a compiler-compiler that is written entirely in C++ (command line) that
will take a grammar specification file (in a somewhat EBNF format, but not
quite) and turn it into a C++ class that will parse files that meet that
specification. Essentially, it is a command line version of PAISLEI, which is
found at:

I would be willing to send the source code to the command line compiler
version of the grammar class generator to anyone wishing to examine it in a
verifiably non-profit context, such as academic research.
