          For a research project, we're looking for a reliable parser for C
that will take an ANSI C program and yield a tree representation of
the program (as a Java or C++ object). Of course a grammar e.g. in
jflex/jbison that will yield the same thing is fine too. We have been
able to find some grammars and parsers, of unknown reliability, that
don't yield a syntax tree; we want to avoid starting with a flaky
parser and/or adding the syntax tree code.


          Preferably the tokens in the tree will contain information
on the line number and character number of the token, but if it
is sufficiently easy to add that code, then we can do that too.


          Thanks for any info you can give.
