ANTLR does, but the C/C++ compiler doesn't. The generated code is only C
compatible right now.

Yes, but all it need do is call an external function. You dont have to
embed 500 lines of C++ code in the action. The external funcitno call
can have C linkage and then it all works fine.

Hence it is a sequence of function calls and then drops out of the rule
function properly because it detects that error state. You don't need to
do anything but decide what to do when you are asked to print an error.
