Hi, all,

I'm searching for a Perl grammar with the purpose to develope an
analysis tool for perl programs. The yacc-file included in the
perl5 package is quite tricky and difficult to read.
Any hint would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance

[I'd be surprised if anything much simpler than the parser in perl5 could
correctly parse perl5. -John]
