The Gardens Point Parser Generator (gppg) is a free Yacc/Bison like
parser generator. Both the parser generator and the parser runtime
components are implemented entirely in C#. They make extensive use of
generic collection classes and so require Beta Version 2.0 of the .NET
Framework. The parser generator takes a Bison/Yacc style grammar
specification with semantic actions coded in C# and produces an
LALR(1) parser. It is designed to be simple, efficient and as similar
as possible to Yacc/Bison in functionality. It does not include a
scanner/lexical analyser generator. The parserís interfaces
however, are designed to be as simple as possible with minimal

Cheers, Wayne.
