ANTLR 3.01 currently supports Java, C, C#, Objective-C, C++, Python
and Ruby.


The Java, C# and C code generators are current with all of ANTLR's
features, the rest are lagging a little bit behind. ANTLR 3.1 is due
out "real soon now" - hopefully it will get all the generators back in
sync.

ANTLR was preceded by PCCTS (1989, also by Terence Parr) which was
contemporary with early versions of Bison (1.03?). PCCTS is still
available and its LL(k) parsers are quite powerful, but it targets
only C and lacks many of the niceties of ANTLR.
