I am rewriting the front end of a compiler my company originally
developed in IBM 370 assembler, and I am trying to decide whether to
use Lex/Yacc, PCCTS, or just 'hand code' it in 'C'.

I've been playing with the C/C++ generating version of PCCTS, and I
like it, but how well tested is it? Also, now that the focus seems to
be on the Java version, is the C/C++ version a dead end?

Any opinions or experiences regarding PCCTS would be greatly

Thanks in advance,
