UniCC, (Universal Compiler-Compiler) is a powerful LALR(1) parser generator and language development system for computer professionals. It serves as an all-round design and build tool assisting compiler writers in any parsing-related task, including production quality compiler construction and the implementation of domain specific languages. It unifies an integrated generator for lexical analyzers and a powerful LALR(1) parser generator into one software solution. The programming interface is a rich, extendable, and innovative BNF-based grammar definition language for expressing context-free grammars.
The Parsing Expression Grammar Template Library (PEGTL) is a C++0x library for creating parsers according to a Parsing Expression Grammar (PEG). Grammars are embedded as regular C++ code, created with template programming (not template meta programming). These hierarchies naturally correspond to the inductive definition of PEGs. The library extends on the subject of PEGs with new expression types, actions that can be attached to grammar rules, and mechanisms to ensure helpful diagnostics in case of parsing errors. PEGs are superficially similar to Context-Free Grammars (CFGs).
