the rule are scattered through the documentation. I have a sed script that will extract them (I think it will work on the official version but I have only done it with a patched version that has been merged into the trunk). By the way, there a several errors in the documentation. I'm (as time permits) working on fixing them but it's kind of low on my current priority list. the sed script: http://www.dsource.org/projects/scrapple/browser/trunk/dparser/gram.sed the bash script used to run it: http://www.dsource.org/projects/scrapple/browser/trunk/dparser/cut_gram2 (you will need to modify it to fit your system)

Is there any reason you can't use one of the existing D lexers out there? --bb
