I have written few simple apps using an automatic parser generator
tool (JavaCC/JJTree which will create AST automatically).
Can anybody tell me how to do "on-the-fly parsing" ... like they do in
IDEs ie parsing while typing? This can be used for actions like code
completion, error highlighting while editing text etc . I would
preferably want to do the parsing with a parser generated using an
automatic parser generator.
Can anybody give an outline as to how this can be done (and
potentially some source code )
(I posted this in javacc forum but there was no response. )
