If SAX == lex, then what == yacc?
A thought that struck me (and probably struck many of you before me) is that the event stream from a SAX parser is much like the token stream from a lexical analyser, like 'lex'. This made me wonder what the equivalent to 'yacc' would be in this picture; an application that help you construct the logic for dealing with event streams. Is there such an application? I cannot immediately think of one. XSLT has some of the features you would expect of such an application, but because it is designed to be state-free, it isn't the same as a state-sensitive application like 'yacc'. Has anyone any suggestions as to which applications may fill this void? Am I missing something really obvious? Please don't pass on your dislike of yacc/bison, if any (I prefer JavaCC myself, but that is another story). Cheers, Tony. ** Anthony B. Coates >> mailto:abcoates@T... << ** Software Engineer (Java).
