I've heard of a PCCTS 1.33 plugin for Metrowerks CodeWarrior but even
if it is solid, it may not support Sorceror. Try asking on

If you can use Java, then ANTLR (PCCTS) 2.x should be readily portable
to the Macintosh, and it incorporates Sorceror's functionality into

Again, if you can use Java, take a look at JavaCC, also an LL(k)
parser generator. I have used it extensively on the Mac. It includes
Java and C++ grammars, and one of the examples is a source to source
converter (a translator from a simple extended Java to standard Java).
