Sorry, i made a mistake in explaining the problem here. I will try to
a) pANTLR3_UINT8 is a pointer to unsigned char.
b) But say i get a const char* to be parsed, but when i try
the antlr3NewAsciiStringInPlaceStream, it only accepts pANTLR3_UINT8, so we
have to do a cast here. In c++, this requires a const_cast +
If we can take care const correctness in probably the next version, then
such unnecessary casts can be avoided.
