Compiler generator that combines the functionality of lex and yacc
Coco/R combines the functionality of the well-known UNIX tools lex and yacc, to form an extremely easy to use compiler generator that generates recursive descent parsers, their associated scanners, and in some versions a driver program, from attributed grammars written using EBNF syntax with attributes and semantic actions which conform to the restrictions imposed by LL1 parsing rather than LALR parsing, as allowed by yacc. The user has to add modules for symbol table handling, optimization, and code generation in order to get a running compiler. Coco/R can also be used to construct other syntax-based applications that have less of a “compiler” flavour.
Coco/R is available in Oberon, Modula-2, Pascal, Delphi, C, Java and C# versions. This port only builds the C/C++ version.
