The SLR Star Parser Generator was released today.

The SLR Star package contains:

1. SLR Star parser generator.
2. DFAC lexer generator.
3. Symbol table builder.
4. Automatic AST constructor, based on notation in the grammar.
5. Automatic tree walker.
6. Automatic syntax help for the user of the generated compiler.
7. Calculator example.

The generated parsers use compressed-matrix parser tables based
on the concepts defined in the paper:

"Optimization of Parser Tables for Portable Compilers"

The input grammar notation is based on TBNF. This is a more
practical TBNF which should work better in the real world. For
more information on TBNF see:

This is a complete package for students studying "compiler
construction". It's available from CompilerWare ...

I recommend that you download both DFAC and SLR Star so you will
have the DFAC examples and "brief" documentation as well as the
SLR Star example also.

An LALR Star is coming soon. An LR Star, later.

Comments are welcome (positive or negative).
