Re: Handling an INCLUDE directive.

Hi Will,

I think the only way to maintain the file/line information would be to
modify SableCC, so that the generated Parser.java class privides
overridable hooks to do this.

If you are interested in helping me adding this feature, give a look at
http://sourceforge.net/projects/sablecc/ and get a SourceForge user ID. 
I am in the process of moving SableCC's development there.  This will
simplify the process of contributing to SableCC.  The CVS repository
already includes a version of SableCC with the following improvements:
(1) support for the "java -jar" option,
(2) support for multiple parser generation, and
(3) hooks for Jakarta-Ant (http://jakarta.apache.org/ant).

I think it would really be great to have an elegant solution to the
#include problem.
