Im going to start on a D grammar for antlr, does anyone use antlr ?  Its my
first time and would appreciate the experienced help :).  After that we could
get antlr to generate D code!

Thanks,
Charlie

antlr) told me that he started a new tool which will make supporting new languages easier. You should a a look at grammatica (http://www.nongnu.org/grammatica). Its syntax is better. I've "composed" an EBNF Grammar for D, but it's not finished. Does anybody know a good tool that supports you creating one?

Sweet! Care to share ? Or coordinate efforts ?

I usually like to compile as I go , so I know it works, but I think Im just
going to copy the grammar off DMD and work it out later, anyone know how
complete it is ?

Great! I started writing up D's grammar a couple of times but i allways got into problems because i'm not very good at this. Can't wait to see what you write! Can you please post it here when it is done :)
 Thanks,

Hmm.... i was already going to do a complete port of COCO/R to D, 
meaning first the output and then the compiler. Never got to it though. 
I believe COCO/R is a predecessor of ANTLR but it's tiny, simple, fast, 
and very easy to use. Any interest? COCO/R was originally written in 
Modula, then ported to C, Delphi, Java, C#...

Drawback: the parsers generated are non-reentrant, IIRC - though it's 
nothing a cold shower cannot change.
