The 3rd edition grammar is part of the ANSI specification and is
available in a PDF format from the ANSI e-shop. It requires some work
to incorporate suitable terminals etc. I am not sure of the IPR issues
else I would attach the relevant sections.

I am hoping to use MSTA (part of COCOM and LALR(k>1)) to build a
suitable parser but any optimism may be due to the triumph of hope
over inexperience.

My main interest is in building something that would make mass
code-rewriting more of a science than an art. Please do let me know if
this strikes a chord.
