What is ANTLR-D?
ANTLR is a lexer and parser
generator for LL(k) grammars. It is written in Java
and can generate lexers and parsers in (as of version 2.7.5) Java, C++, C# and
ANTLR-D adds the possibility to generate code for the D programming
language as well.
ANTLR-D 2.7.5 Step 01 is based on ANTLR 2.7.5. ANTLR-D does not modify existing
ANTLR code, it only adds new one. This means, you should be able to use ANTLR-D
everywhere you used the same version of ANTLR without any difference.
ANTLR-D comes as source code and binary package.
The binary contains the compiled Java jar file which can be run
everywhere where a Java Runtime Environment 1.4 or later is available.
A windows installer is not available so you have to edit the bin/antlr.bat file
by hand to set the appropriate directory to run ANTLR-D with this batch file.
The source contains the Java source of ANTLR plus the files for D code
generation (three antlr/DLang*.java files and everything in
The included makefiles were changed for ANTLR-D but are untested!
Both distributions contain the necessary runtime support source for D in the
lib/dlang directory and a few examples ported from Java to D in the
Because of the different string concepts of D and Java, the string handling is
rather inconvenient. The runtime sources use a class WString which is similar to
Java's String class. WString is based on 16 bit wchar characters.
ANTLR-D is currently public domain, as ANTLR 2.7.5 is. Other ANTLR versions may
have a different license, so the license of ANTLR-D may need to change as well.
At the moment, there is no more documentation available, please read the
sources, especially of the examples.
