We are working on a tool, named Kakuy!, that animates Earley’s
algorithm. Kakuy! also builds the parse trees for the input
string. To do this we coded the Grune/Jacob description but after some
tests we found some problems with cycles and erasing rules. So we make
some changes and addings that look very similar to thouse squetched in
a previous post by Vladimir ( You can freely
download a full functional copy of Kakuy! from

You also can view some parse trees/dags at
