Yes. Enough of your sophistry. ANTLR's existence puts everyone with the
need for language processing at an advantage.
If the $price$ is twenty or thirty dollars to take the fullest advantage
of that otherwise freely granted resource, one cannot possibly
complain, unless one is deranged and cannot see the extraordinary value
As I said, were this a commercial product, you'd not even be able to use
it without an outlay of hundreds of dollars. Complaining is déclassé,
to say the very least.
