ANTLR v4

INTRODUCTION

Hi and welcome to the Honey Badger 4.0b2 release of ANTLR!

INSTALLATION

$ cd /usr/local/lib
$ curl -O --silent http://www.antlr.org/download/antlr-4.0b2-complete.jar

Or just download from http://www.antlr.org/download/antlr-4.0b2-complete.jar
and put it somewhere rational for your operating system.

You can either add to your CLASSPATH:

$ export CLASSPATH=".:/usr/local/lib/antlr-4.0b2-complete.jar:$CLASSPATH"

and launch org.antlr.v4.Tool directly:

$ java org.antlr.v4.Tool
ANTLR Parser Generator Version 4.0b2
    -o ___              specify output directory where all output is generated
    -lib ___            specify location of .tokens files
...

or use -jar option on java:

$ java -jar /usr/local/lib/antlr-4.0b2-complete.jar
ANTLR Parser Generator Version 4.0b2
    -o ___              specify output directory where all output is generated
    -lib ___            specify location of .tokens files
...

You can make a script, /usr/local/bin/antlr4:

#!/bin/sh
java -cp "/usr/local/lib/antlr4-complete.jar:$CLASSPATH" org.antlr.v4.Tool $*

On Windows, you can do something like this (assuming you put the
jar in C:\libraries) for antlr4.bat:

java -cp C:\libraries\antlr-4.0b2-complete.jar;%CLASSPATH% org.antlr.v4.Tool %*

You can also use an alias

$ alias antlr4='java -jar /usr/local/lib/antlr-4.0b2-complete.jar'

Either way, say just antlr4 to run ANTLR now.

The TestRig class is very useful for testing your grammars:

$ alias grun='java org.antlr.v4.runtime.misc.TestRig'

EXAMPLE

In /tmp/Hello.g4, paste this:

// Define a grammar called Hello
// match keyword hello followed by an identifier
// match lower-case identifiers
grammar Hello;
r : 'hello' ID ;
ID : [a-z]+ ;
WS : [ \t\n]+ -> skip ; // skip spaces, tabs, newlines

Then run ANTLR the tool on it:

$ cd /tmp
$ antlr4 Hello.g4
$ javac Hello*.java

Now test it:

$ grun Hello r -tree
hello parrt
^D
(r hello parrt)

(That ^D means EOF on unix; it's ^Z in Windows.) The -tree option prints
the parse tree in LISP notation.
