926Yet another proposal
- Nov 1, 1999Hi,
yesterday I presented ANTLR to one of my friends who is also one of the
major developers of KDE, the wonderful desktop environment for Linux.
I tought I had convinced him that ANTLR is superior to YACC which is
still widespread. But then he pointed out a little details that makes
ANTLR unusable in a project like KDE in which a lot of people are
involved: Whereas YACC produces "complete" code, the code generated by
ANTLR requires some additional files. Of course, all needed files are
included in the ANTLR distribution but ANTLR may not be accessible to
all project members. This seems to be a minor problem but actually it
stops him from using ANTLR.
For that reason, I propose to provide an options that puts all necessary
(C++) files in the target directory automatically.
