Hi David,

not to throw a spanner in the works immediately but I was wondering if you
could
consider a different parser from ANTLR. There is a project called
Goldparser:
http://goldparser.org/
>From what I understand this thing is the fastest on the block, faster than
ANTLR,
but I also admit that I haven't got real first-hand experience with it. I
played around
with the C# port for a while when I had the insane idea to try and build an
AS3 compiler
in C#. Too bad up until now I still don't seem to get my head around
building a decent
grammar for a language ;(
At one time there was even an AS3 port of Goldparser, but I can't seem to
find the link
anymore. But that isn't relevant for this instance anyways.
I'll go and check out your github project some more now ;)

cheers,

Roland
