With Waxeye, you can rapidly explore ideas for the syntax of your language. Whether you are creating a full programming language, a domain-specific language or just a simple data format, Waxeye will get you there faster. Features ======== * Scanner-less Parsing * Language Independent, Reusable Grammars * Modular, Composable Grammars * Grammar Testing * Automatic AST Generation * Choice of Programming Language - C - Java - Python - Ruby - Scheme 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, 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. Building ======== 1. Install MzScheme v4; either with DrScheme or alone. http://download.plt-scheme.org 2. Install Waxeye's backend for PLT Scheme. Unix, OSX: sudo ln -s /usr/local/waxeye/src/scheme/waxeye /usr/local/plt/lib/plt/collects/ Windows: Copy the directory 'src/scheme/waxeye' into your PLT-Scheme 'collects' directory. For example, that might be 'C:\Program Files\PLT\collects'. 3. Build Waxeye Unix, OSX: ./build/unix Windows: - If your PLT-Scheme installation isn't 'C:\Program Files\PLT' 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. - When the script has finished, press 'y' then 'Enter' to remove the temporary files. Running ======= Unix, OSX: Use 'waxeye'. 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.
