Hi All:


Current now i am writing a issue report about the comparison about
JavaCC & ANTLR.
The most disadvantage of JavaCC compared to ANLTR in my mind is:
1. ANTLR can generate parser not only in Java , but also in C++,
Python...
2.The doc of JavaCC is so poor!
3. ANLTR has more powerful error reporting than JavaCC (also including
some utility tools such as Paser Tree Viewer)




Please add more comments on this topic and I really appreciate yours.




Thx/BR
