BNFC: A compiler front-end generator.

[ development, gpl, library, program ] [ Propose Tags ]

The BNF Converter is a compiler construction tool generating a compiler front-end from a Labelled BNF grammar. It was originally written to generate Haskell code, but can also be used for generating Agda, C, C++, C#, Java, Ocaml and XML code.

Given a Labelled BNF grammar the tool produces: an abstract syntax as a Haskell, Agda, C, C++, C#, Ocaml module or Java directory, a case skeleton for the abstract syntax in the same language, an Alex, JLex, or Flex lexer generator file, a Happy, CUP, Bison, or Antlr parser generator file, a pretty-printer as a Haskell, Agda, C, C++, C#, Java, or Ocaml module, an XML representation, a LaTeX file containing a readable specification of the language.
