                                    Announcing the 1.21 release of PCCTS

                                The Purdue Compiler Construction Tool Set

                                                            August 8, 1994

Items of note in the new version:

o The C++ output is much cleaner, more complete and compiles with more
        C++ compilers.

o A number of minor bug fixes have been made.

o We improved the genmk program.

o Line numbers are now tracked when using infinite lookahead.

o The standard release now includes a Mac port.

For those users with anonymous FTP access: The site is:

                                  everest.ee.umn.edu (

in the directory:


[NOTE: we no longer use marvin.ecn.purdue.edu for the ftp site.]

Those with only email access mail send:

                                  mail -s 'email install' pccts@ecn.purdue.edu
                                  mail -s 'email one.c' pccts@ecn.purdue.edu
                                  mail -s 'email pccts.bag' pccts@ecn.purdue.edu

Note that non-UNIX users will have to get files install.unbag.reqd and
unbag.c in addition. See the README file. The makefile has explicit
stuff for a variety of compilers for PC's. A makefile.VMS file is
also included for ANTLR and DLG. Also, we now have a makefile.mpw file.
