hi all,

i have problem with coding BNF, so can any body help me with that
i want just small subprogram that chech the syntax error

example of BNF rule:
<program> -><stmts>
<stmts> -> <stmt>|<stmt>;<stmt>
<stmt> -> <var>=<expr>
<var> -> a | b | c | d
<expr> -> <term>+<term>|<term>-<term>
<term> -> <var> | const

where the symbol between< > represent non-terminal rule and other like +, -, = , ;, a, b, c, and d represent terminal symbols and | means OR option.......

this BNF could give such statement like a=b+const

the program should check whether the statement correct or not?

thank you

Just in case PaulFranz isn't available at the moment, search for JavaCC on google.  There's a few links there.
