Re: Support for generation of parsers in multiple languages

There are long term plans to do so.  Do not expect this in the short
term, though, as I want to first rewrite the lexer and parser generator
engine to handle more complex grammars (LALR(K), conflicts...).  And, I
have to finish my current Ph.D. studies, before I do any of this, then
find an employer [or better: customers;-)] that will finance me to
continue developing SableCC (and SableVM).

There are no search engine on our web pages.  I know that some messages
are indexed by www.google.com.  Maybe some similar public index site
allows for searching on a particular domain?

I currently have an open support request (and a bug report) about
SourceForge mailing-list archives.  SourceForge's mail archives have
been down for a month, now, and the problem hasn't been solved (even
though they closed at least 3 support requests about this problem!). 
So, I try to avoid posting to these mailing-lists fot the time being as
messages are lost.  If SourceForge does not improve the stability of its
services within the upcoming months, I will have to consider moving the
development site elsewhere; but I just don't have the time to set up a
development site now.  I do really like their restricted cvs/ssh access,
unfortunately I do not know how to set something similar easily.  [The
ssh access to the cvs server is restricted to cvs operations.  Neat.]
