Hi, Richard,

I thought everyone would use their favorite translator tool as a
grammar translator as I have. It seems to me, grammars are easier
than "real" languages, because you needn't worry about semantics,
variable/structure modes,... and many of the grammars are non-perfect
anyway. regards, Bob
