Java parser generator

  • The Rats! parser generator is part of xtc.

Rats! is a parser generator for C-like languages (currently only Java) that has been designed so that grammars are concise and easily extensible. It relies on ordered choices to avoid ambiguities, supports syntactic predicates for unlimited lookahead, and integrates lexing with parsing. It also supports automatically generating abstract syntax trees, thus greatly reducing the need for explicit semantic actions.
