Agree with you, it's rather simple to do.  Give me a few days, and I'll
do it.

As you wish;-)

Meanwhile, you can do the modifications locally on your own copy of
SableCC, so that you can get on with your work.

Here's what you can do:
(1) [ugly, but effective] hard code your path in ca/.../SableCC.java:

  dir = new File(in.getParent());

Change it to:

  dir = new File("/your/custom/path");

(2) modify ca/.../lexer.txt

public class LexerException extends Exception
/*** ADD "public" in the following line ***/
    public LexerException(String message)

Have fun!
