"A parser generator is a tool that reads a grammar specification and converts it to a Java program that can recognize matches to the grammar."The name of the book will be "Generating Parsers With JavaCC" and is expected to cover the many features of JavaCC and JJTree, its tree builder. Tom is looking for any suggestions and comments that you may have. You can provide them at the book's website.
It has been couple of years since JavaCC quietly moved to java.net. But now this very useful tools quiet exstance is threatened by Tom Copeland as he is in the process of writing a book on how you can use this tool to generate your own parser.

Thanks for the post! But just my luck - you post a nice note about the book and the site is down this evening for a bit while some DNS changes propagate. Ah well, Murphy's Law.
Thanks again for your suggestions; I'm still trying to wrap my head around the "API == microcode" thing... very interesting stuff. Good times!
