Hallo NG,


for my studies I have to give a review about parser generators,
especially those which produce java output. I searched a lot in the
internet and for me it seems that LL-parser generators (ANTLR, JavaCC)
are used in most cases if one want to use a java parser generator. LALR
is on position two but there is a big gap between LL and LALR. The LALR
parser generator which is used in most cases is SableCC. About JavaCUP
I did not find any applications. Pure LR parser generators in java are
currently not present (YACC/M is still in development, jay is written
in C).


Is that right??


If one also can also use languages like OCAML, C and C++ is there
another trend?


I think in that case the LALR parser generators are more commonly used
in comparison to LL.


For my studies especially for my thesis it is important to reference
such a statement. Therefore: do you know a book or a internet site
where I can get this information?


Kind regards,
Uli
