Re: out of memory

Hi Pieter,

even with this option the grammar won't work. After 3,5 hours (!) sablecc

The same (more or less of course) grammar for JavaCC takes under five minutes
to come up with the compiler.
This is a very serious difference.
I would therefore suggest that focus your attention on this 'problem'. Making
a good framework is one thing (in which you succeeded IMHO), but performance
is also a very important issue.
For now, I will have to use JavaCC as i cannot afford to wait 3,5 hours.

If you really want to help, you should send your grammar so that we can actually use it to investigate the problem. Otherwise, it is difficult to try solve "your problem".
