Hello all,

    I've been looking for a while without success for a tool to generate
an (E|L)BNF grammar given a bison grammar file. I need that to get a
grammar for a pretty complex programming language whose developers don't
think it is necessary to provide a BNF. My ultimate goal is to attempt to
implement the language from scratch as a pet project and therefore having
a BNF for it would be a real time saver. Does anybody ever heard of such
a utility?


[Bison's input is just a subset of BNF with slightly different
punctuation. -John]
