To help other first time ANTLR users, I created some documentation,
tutorials, and reference guides that I wish I had when starting.
If you just want to see the documents then they should be *freely* available
in a month or so depending upon quantity and the quality of the feedback.
If you are interested in checking the documents and sending feedback to help
me out it would be appreciated.
The documents have a few categories
1. Create an ANTLR appliance using Virtual Box, Debian, ANTLR, ANTLRWorks
2. A Reference Manual for org.antlr.Tool command line options, and
3. Additional notes for VirtualBox, Debian, and ANTLRWorks.
4. A basic tutorial for using org.antlr.Tool, ANTLRWorks.
5. How to setup NetBeans to debug/step through at the source code level
for both org.antlr.Tool and ANTLRWorks. This is not recommended but is
documented because when you need it, it is nice to have.
If you do decide to help, I would ask that you take the time to work through
the instructions/tutorials in full which should take the better part of a
day or two. Since you will be building a virtual machine with VirtualBox,
you will need a machine that can spare at least 512 Meg for the virtual
Since I don't run a web server, I can only e-mail them to you.
Also, until they are correct and published, you cannot share them with
anyone. I don't want them indexed by a search engine and contributing more
invalid info to the Internet.
