This archive contains the JavaCC grammar for the C++ language
(file CPLUSPLUS.jj). As it is, the grammar
parses an input source file written in C++ without performing any action in
response to the grammar productions it applies. Typical usage of the grammar
requires the specification of such actions, by means of Java code
fragments properly inserted into the grammar productions.
The directory where the TAR archive is opened must be
added to the environment variable CLASSPATH.
Execution requires the availability of a Java interpreter
(version 1.2 or later) and of a C++ preprocessor (e.g.,
Compilation requires the availability of the JavaCC compiler of
compilers and of a Java compiler (version 1.2 or later).
A precompiled (platform independent) byte code is provided
in the TAR archive. Here are the commands to (re-)compile the
Parsing of a given source file (e.g., example.cc) is done in two steps:
first, the file is preprocessed, then the parser is executed:
g++ -E -o example.i -c example.cc
java CPPParser example.i
No external documentation is available. See the book:
The C++ Programming Language (2nd edition)
for the grammar specification.
