Parsing, BNF, TreeTop, GhostWheel, ...

367830 [christian@su] <shameless plug>
367938 [no@sp m. le ] Actually, I think Citrus does a better job than Treetop (of which I'm primary maintainer and a serious user). It provides a BNF built on ruby functions and operators, and also a Treetop/PEG-like parser for grammar files as an alternative. A brief look at Kanocc indicates Citrus may be preferable over it also.
