digitalmars.D - D Grammar in BNF Text Form?

Can anyone point me to a text version of the D grammar in some kind of
BNF or EBNF format?  The D lang web site's info is close, but it's
buried in html which I'ld rather not have to wrestle with.

My purpose is to attempt to write a D language parser in Perl using
Damian Conway's Regex::Grammars module (on CPAN).

Thanks.

Best regards,

-Tom

The file there named 'D.g4' seems to be almost exactly what I'm looking for. Thanks, Brian! Best, -Tom P.S. My work on the Perl parser (and BRL-CAD D bindings) can be seen on the BRL-CAD project site at: http://sourceforge.net/p/brlcad/code/HEAD/tree/brlcad/branches/d-binding/misc/d-bindings/
