TextTransformer 1.6.0 just has been released. TextTransformer is a
visual development environment (Windows) for building, debugging and
executing parsers and translators. TextTransformer is made both for
end-users and for c++ developers.

TextTransformer 1.6.0 integrates a quick viewer for input files with
three view modes:

- text: file is shown in text form
- binary: file is shown in binary form, with fixed line length
- hex: file is shown as hex dump

The TextTransformer debugger cooperates with the viewers as with the
editor in the versions before: recognized sections of text are
highlighted and breakpoints can be set. Quick experiments with input
from an additional editor still remains possible.

Tree representations of the parsed input are shown in a smart loading
tree viewer now. Only the visible part of a tree is loaded into this

The non visible parts of TextTransformer were revised and improved
too. Look-ahead tokens can get buffered now, there are additional
possibilities for the treatment of unspecified text sections and
additional commands for tree manipulation.

The use of a TextTransformer project as a preprocessor is demonstrated
in the new example "BinaryCheck" and there are three new free
TextTransformer projects at:


- a project to import Yacc grammars into the TextTransformer
- a parser for the programming language C
- a parser for HTML4

There also is an additional demonstration video for the
transformation-manager at:
