Compiler front-end generator based on Labelled BNF

The BNF Converter is a compiler construction tool that generates a compiler front-end and a readable syntax description document from a Labelled BNF grammar. It was originally written to generate Haskell, but it can now also be used for generating Java, C++, and C. . To process Haskell output, you need the Glorious Glasgow Haskell Compiler (virtual package ghc), the Happy parser generator (package happy) and the Alex scanner generator (package alex). . To process Java output, you need a Java compiler and virtual machine, the CUP parser generator (package cup) and the JLex scanner generator (package jlex). . To process C or C++ output, you need a C or C++ compiler, respectively, the Bison parser generator (package bison) and the flex scanner generator (package flex). . To process the generated documents, you need LaTeX (packages tetex-base, tetex-bin, etc.).
