command-line switch or option to alter the behaviour, but I can't find
it now :-(
What I do is to delete any Antlr outputs before running Antlr,
ensuring they are all generated again. Unless I do this, Visual Studio
& make think that the Antlr outputs are always out of date and need
regenerating. Here's an example from a makefile rule - it uses cantlr,
not the Java Antlr, but it's the same principle.
TestLanguageParser.hpp : TestLanguage.g
if exist TestLanguageLexer.cpp del TestLanguageLexer.cpp
if exist TestLanguageLexer.hpp del TestLanguageLexer.hpp
if exist TestLanguageLexerTokenTypes.hpp del TestLanguageLexerTokenTypes.hpp
if exist TestLanguageParser.cpp del TestLanguageParser.cpp
if exist TestLanguageParser.hpp del TestLanguageParser.hpp
cantlr $(CANTLRFLAGS) TestLanguage.g
