C# and Java parser generator

Grammatica is a parser generator (or compiler compiler) for C# and Java. It reads a grammar file and creates source code for a parser. The grammar file format describes the language in EBNF, with tokens described as regular expressions. Currently only LL(k) grammars are supported, but future versions will probably contain support for other grammar types.
