CookCC Documentation

CookCC is a lexer and parser (LALR (1)) generator project, combined. It is written in Java, but the target languages can vary. It uses a template approach to generate source codes, so it is quite easy to add a new target language. CookCC also comes with a suite of test cases to assist creating and testing new target languages.

A unique feature of CookCC is allowing lexer/parser to be specified using Java annotation. This feature greatly simplifies and eases the writing of lexer and parser for Java.

CookCC requires JRE 1.5+ to run, although the generated Java code can be compiled by earlier versions of JDK.

Command Line Options

-help Display available command line options.
-lang <language> Select the output language. Default is java.
-quiet Suppress console messages.
-debug Generate debugging code. The effect depends on the target language code generator.
-analysis Generate an analysis file for the parser grammar. The file name is fixed to cookcc_parser_analysis.txt.
-defaultreduce Generate a compact parser table (for compressed table format) by assuming that entries would be reduced by default, even in cases of unwanted look ahead.
-lexertable <format> Select lexer DFA table format. Available choices are ecs, full, and compressed. This option will override the table choice specified in the input file. The default choice is ecs.
-parsertable <format> Select parser DFA table format. Available choices are ecs, and compressed. This option will override the table choice specified in the input file. The default choice is ecs.

Language specific options can be found by specifying the language along with -help. For example:

cookcc -help -lang java
