Dilip Ramesh updated PIG-2597:
------------------------------
    Attachment: 18Aug.diff

I have been working on this for sometime now. Here is my first patch. I have written the grammar
for these commands in ANTLR and have got JavaCC to forward it to ANTLR:
History
Set
Clear
Help
It ll be great if anyone can go through and comment on this.
Work ahead:
Get QueryParser to take take care of the remaining commands and relieve JavaCC of these commands.
Hope to come up with another patch in the next two weeks.
Thank you [~daijy] for all the help.

> Currently, the parser for queries is in ANTLR, but Grunt is still javacc. The parser
is very difficult to work with, and next to impossible to understand or modify. ANTLR provides
a much cleaner, more standard way to generate parsers/lexers/ASTs/etc, and moving from javacc
to Grunt would be huge as we continue to add features to Pig.
