The following notes are offered mostly as intermediate leads to
webmasters or other email contacts at these sites that might have
information directly related to TTCN.MP specifically.

Most searches on TTCN lead to information on SDL (LDS) which may not
realy be what you want as far as specific syntax parsers. Beware that
some of the material is dated.

FYI, if you do find any kind of bnf that comes close to what you want
and it is not in yacc-compatible format it can probably be translated
for you easily. I think you know that, but since the material out
there is limitted take what you can get, and as appropriate, possibly
ask back here for help in converting it.

Also please note that some of the .doc, .bnf, and .sdl files on the
cited URLs have comments with email addresses that may provide you
with forward leads to either more current grammars or more specific
TTCN material.



SDL grammars
    linking to bnf files

as suggests it is possible to
    hunt around in

The course material at
requires some German, but their appear to be links to
professors and other academicians that may be able to give you
better leads

Also use of scans for TCCN>SDL or TCCN>LDS can
find resumes for folks who might be able to give you leads.

((Special note text on this page
suggest that you may find a good contact here))
((for your further searching pleasure this page also actually
contains the hint that SDL is LDS in French))
Other relevant search keys

at Tele Danmark

There is a link to the SDL Forum society
public domain / shareware

on SITE material
please note license restrictions and see

Commercial links
and course info

If you are active in this field you must already know ITU.

There is info on TTCN at
it is difficult to real-in the right fish from this ocean of information

Abstract Syntax Notation One (ASN.1):


Known Products
"Concerto: software development environment for technical development.
(HOOD, LDS, TTCN, Ada, Fortran, C, C++, Eiffel, Organisateur,
Configurateur, Metronome) "

also see

you may find a good contact at


Again you may find a contact at

search for Geode/TTCN

see particularly

I do not know if the tool set that you can download at
contains any source material like a bnf in the tool SDL2IF
but you could grab it and see what's there


Hope these random notes help some. Most search engine scans on TTCN lead you
to the giant body of material at ITU, and many of the hits are titles that
simply indicate the contents are in TTCN format.

You best bet may be to follow any relevant lead to a university faculty member.

Best Wishes,
