XML is a very important way for ANTLR and ANTLR 3.0.
One of interest thing, is the posibility to write an AST to XML and to read an
XML file for "regenerate" the AST.
Quoting Oliver Zeigermann <oliver at zeigermann.de>:
> ANTLR 3.0 seems to actually make it and I am looking forward to it. It
> was once discussed to add XML transformation support to ANTLR. If
> Terence and the rest of the ANTLR community still are interested I can
> help with that.
> I have added XML transformation support to 2.x and it turned out to be a
> very poweful, yet a bit less convenient alternative to XSLT.
> Now, as ANTLR 3.0 might allow interpreted *and* compiled parsing and -
> if things go well ;) - will allow for a standard syntax for AST
> construction etc. it will suit nearly perfect for XML transformations.
> The interpreted thing with only standard syntax for AST creation for
> simply ad hoc transformations and the compiled version for complex and
> performance critical stuff.
> What do I want from you:
> (1) Is the time right to start a discussion about it now?
> (2) Is anybody interested in this in the first place?
