Well, then I better get rid of ANTLR v3 as it is against your
definition of free software.
Sorry Scott, but you are a total pain in my ass; always have been.
You dare complain about my management of this project? Get real
dude. You have gotten a lot of recognition from this software. You
have contributed some, which I appreciate, but you need to be more
understanding and patient. Don't try to tell me i've not given my
all to this project. When v2 came out there was NO doc. You're
being pretty insensitive.
You are included now in the list of other whiners that just lost free
support from me. I'm happy to accept tech support contracts if you
want to pay me. I will ask Jean to avoid helping you port ANTLRWorks
to eclipse for free. I'd ask you to stop using my software but I
cannot prevent it as it is BSD license.
Scott you are ungrateful. You are using my free software and
complain about it. I've built this project into the preeminent
parser generator. If you need to buy a book to use it then buy it
and shut up or quit using the software. The choice is simple.
