Hello all,

I am looking for a tool for defining languages using BNF syntax. The
tool has to perform only syntax checking and does not have to perform
any translation or compilation. The tool must also be as small as
possible (hopefully much smaller then using LEX/YACC for that

                                Thanks in advance,

          Izhar Bar-Gad

[You can't get much smaller than yacc and still do any syntax checking. A
yacc parser with no user actions is just a syntax checker. -John]
