    J. Grosch: Generators for High-Speed Front-Ends, Compiler Generation
    Report No. 11, GMD Forschungsstelle an der Universit"at Karlsruhe,
    Sep 1988.

presents the LL(1) parser generator `Ell' and the LALR(1) generator
`Lalr'. The parsers generated by Ell are reported to be half the size
and 50% faster than those generated by Lalr. YACC generated parsers
are somewhat smaller than Lalr's but run at half the speed. The
numbers are obtained with empty semantic actions and don't include
lexing time. The document and the parser generators can be found in
the Cocktail Toolbox distribution.
