Hello all,

I'm new to the mailing list and I'm 'playing' with ANTLR since a few 
days. The ideas behind ANTLR are magnificant and I find it a very 
intelligent system, a real contribution to Computer Science.

Now I have a simple question.

I must find a system to translate Pascal files into JAVA. (can be C 
into JAVA aswell)
Can that be done with ANTLR?
Is there a quick solution to do that (perhaps starting from the 
Pascal example?)

I have testet the Pascal grammer (antlr-2.7.1\java\examples\pascal) 
and the GNU C parser from the website.

ANTLR produces me the JAVA-files PascalLexer.java PascalParser.java 
and PascalTokenTypes.java
and I can build these together and test it with the example P_0_1.pas
I also tested it with the grammer from Sinan (message 2398 Re: Ter, 
Would you mind looking at ....) which builds me an AST.

My problem is that I want to translate this P_0_1.pas into JAVA code!

Is that possible?

I also searched in the FAQ and the Messages list and read a lot of 
discussions, but none of them goes into translating source-code into 
JAVA. And I searched in the ANTLR Reference Manual, which is detailed 
AND interesting, but I first have to know if my PASCAL to JAVA 
translation is possible and how.
If so, I'm sure I will become a dedicated ANTLR-user.

Thank you in advance to help this newcomer.
