In C# you can use the resetState() methods thus:

The implementation of the resetState() methods in C# should tell you all you
need to know.

Alternatively, the ANTLR 2.8experimental release has inbuilt
resetState()-like support for all langauges. It currently uses methods named
reset() however. See Loring's earlier post about when it might be available.
