Do you want that version? However, what is the association in Eclipse with
.g files?

I'm using it exactly as in the wiki.

You are probably using the wrong Maven plugin. Find the docs in the wiki

I've an antlr3 grammar that compiles fine in AntlrWorks. I'm trying to
load it into Eclipse with Maven to start work on the non-grammar bits.

Problem is it won't compile in either. Error flags are on the first line,
grammar ...;, and nothing I've tried will remove them. Somehow antlr2 is
getting involved in the compile step.

The dependency list shows antlr-runtime-3.2.jar and stringtemplate-3.2.jar
now. Previously there was an antlr2 jar that I've explicitly excluded.
Didn't make a difference.

My best guess is that the antlr3 maven plugin is launching antlr2, not
antlr3, but I have no visibility into what that plugin is doing.


There's also likely confusion over which eclipse plugin I should be using.
After some searching I removed everything but the one from certiv, but no

Could someone point me to a known-to-work reference? Thanks!
