ANTRLR D Target
The ANTLR D Target represents an full featured and tested port of ANTLR 4.
This covers the runtime library, the tool to translate the syntax into D code and the tests for the runtime library. See also ANTLR version 4.9.2.
Like other language ports, this D runtime library uses UTF-8.
- Download or clone the package
- Change directory to the root of the package and call dub.
- You will find the generated ANTLR D-runtime library in lib/libantlr-d.a
- The ANTLR tool for D will be generated by make build_examples (./build.ps1 build_examples on windows) in build/antlr4-4.9.2/tool/target/antlr4-4.9.2-complete.jar
Consider providing a shortcut to make it easy to use ANTLR. For example, define an alias:
alias antlr4='java -jar path/to/antlr-d/build/antlr4-4.9.2/tool/target/antlr4-4.9.2-complete.jar'
- java 1.8
- 7-Zip (Only on windows)

Extension versus other ANTLR runtime versions
The data type to store text is Variant. This is handy for the rewriting feature on an indent-based syntax like Python. In this case we need a structure representing the text as well as the number of indents.
