I've been wanting to check out Antlr (www.antlr.org) because it gives us the /possibility/ to use the same grammar files for both CPython and JPython. One problem though is that it generates Java and C++ so we'd be accepting our first C++ into the core if we went this route.
Yes, but why not YACC? Is Antlr so much better, or is YACC too primitive, or what? IMHO, adding C++ just for parsing is not going to happen, so Antlr is not going to happen either.
