This still gives me the same error, any other ideas ? Of is antlr just
not appropriate for this ?


Kind regards,

COMPARE : '>';

ANYTHING : (~'>')(.)*;

testExpression : COMPARE ANYTHING; 



Try this.

Hi All,

I am trying to setup a very simple grammar, ik should be able to handle

"> thiscouldbeanything"

So I tried:

COMPARE : '>';

ANYTHING : (.)+;

testExpression : COMPARE ANYTHING;

but when generating java resources it gave me the error:

"The following alternatives can never be matched: 1"

The problems seems to be the ANYTHING, so how should I define a grammar
to be able to handle this ?

Kind regards,
