Correct - JavaCC only produces Java lexers/parsers at the moment.


Also, I'd recommend JJTree over JTB since JTB doesn't support all the
current JavaCC lexical constructs. For example, JTB can't handle token
definitions that contain repetition ranges, e.g.:


TOKEN : {
  <THREE_HELLOS : ("hello"){3}>
}
