[antlr-interest] antlr 3.2.1 - when? (bugs 381 and 314)

Well, this bug 314 is some-how related to bug 381.
Since version 3.1.2 "p+=rule" results in "strongly typed" collection of rule_return objects.
This way rule return values can be conveniently accessed with no need to downcast.
Unfortunately, this prevents definitions like: p+=ruleA | p+=ruleB
So, the solution is to change the collection type back to generic RuleReturnScope and downcast to rule_return if/when needed.
I think the best solution would be to modify the lexer/parser generator so it makes a smart choice and outputs "strongly typed" collection whenever possible, but when collection would contain two or more rule return types generic RuleReturnScope type is used.

Hi all,

How is it related to ANTLR-381? I'd be glad to move forward to ANTLR-3.2+
