After 1 month working on an other project, I am trying to recompile an
ANTLR3.1 project. My grammar was generated using ANTLR 3.1b2, but the
corresponding C target is no more available. Then, I install
libantlr3c-3.1 : the C target runtime library is not compatible with
the code generated using ANTLR 3.1b2 !
As a result, I regenerate my grammar with ANTLR 3.1, but the generated
code does not compile because "tree" variables in C structures are not
// BEGIN OF CODE
typedef struct ppddlParser_ppddlDoc_return_struct
/** Generic return elements for ANTLR3 rules that are not in tree
parsers or returning trees
tree; // ERROR HERE!
// END OF CODE
I tried both ANTLRworks and ANTLR IDE v3 for eclipse, without success...
In other words, it seems the code generator and the C runtime library
provided on ANTLR website are not compatible.
Which version of ANTLR and of the C runtime library should I use?
By the way, based on my own experience, it is often quite difficult to
find the C target runtime library whose version corresponds to the
right version of ANTLR that generated the C code. Would there be a
clearer way to associate the versions of the code generator and of the
