Several years ago Mike Clancy gave me the sources to a couple of pascal
programs called ``aardvark'' and ``llama''. These are functionally
similar to Lex and Yacc, respectively, although their input format is
vastly different. I'm not sure about the PD status of these programs,
but a comment at the beginning lists the following attribution:

They claim to both be and produce standard Pascal, and I did get them to
compile under BSD with no problem. However I never did use them for
anything, deciding in the end that it was easier
for our students to learn C than for me to learn a new compiler-compiler.
