I bought both books from Terence and I hope that they will be updated, too.

I'm a C++Builder user. Because I'm a hardware guy and due to some historical
reasons, Delphi (Pascal) isn't MY programming language at all. But of course
I'm interested to get ANTLR working with Delphi, too.

At the moment, I'm still busy to get all my development tools working, so
I can't help you with that ANTLR problem. What I have done so far:
- Tried to get the C target language working with C++Builder
- Problems with missing Object-files. That's an typical C++Builder-issue.
I installed now Visual C++ 2010 Express, but no progress at the moment
because my focus moved to Eclipse temporarily.
- ANTLR-plug in installed
- Python-plug in PyDev installed
When you look in the ANTLR interest archives (yep, I looked for an search
option, too) you will find some questions related to C++Builder and Delphi
from me. But until now no echo out of the universe.
Pls. send me a PM, so we can discuss our further cooperation.
