Waxeye Parser Generator

Waxeye is a parser generator based on parsing expression grammars (PEGs).

Currently supported programming languages:

  • Racket

Features

  • Language-agnostic, modular, composable grammars

  • Automatic AST generation

  • Command-line grammar interpreter

  • Grammar testing DSL

User Manual

Waxeye's user manual is in docs/manual.html. The latest version is also online at http://waxeye.org/manual.html.

Installation

Unix and OSX

  1. Extract the files of the distribution.

  2. Copy the waxeye directory to where you wish to install it.

  3. Add the bin/waxeye binary to your search path. e.g. If you have ~/bin in your PATH and installed waxeye to /usr/local/waxeye then you might do the following.

    ln -s /usr/local/waxeye/bin/waxeye ~/bin/

Windows

  1. Extract the files of the distribution.

  2. Copy the waxeye directory to where you wish to install it.

Running

Unix and OSX

Use the waxeye command.

Windows

Use a command prompt to run waxeye.exe. Note: If using the interpreter under Windows, you will need to press Ctrl-z and then 'Enter' after the input you want to interpret.

Building from Source

  1. Install Racket

  2. Install Waxeye's backend for Racket.

    • Unix and OSX

      sudo ln -s /usr/local/waxeye/src/racket/waxeye /usr/local/racket/lib/racket/collects/

    • Windows

      Copy the directory src/racket/waxeye into your Racket collects directory. For example, C:\Program Files\Racket\collects.

  3. Build Waxeye

    • Unix and OSX

      ./build/unix

    • Windows

      • If your Racket installation isn't C:\Program Files\Racket, then you will need to modify build\exe.bat to use the correct path.

      • From your Waxeye installation directory, run the build\exe.bat script in a command prompt.
