T-Gen User's Guide

Geoff
Anyone know where I can get a readable version of the t-gen user's guide?
The one that comes with t-gen is postscript.

Thanks.

Alternatively, install Ghostscript.

Uffffff, shades of the 90's, probably just skip the whole thing . . . it
seems to have slipped out of date.

You are slipping out of date, the first hit on Google presents you with
a PDF version of the guide.

It's a good idea to have Ghostscript installed anyway -- a significant amount
of the more interesting stuff on the web arrives as PostScript.

A question for anyone who knows the answer ;-)  Does T-Gen have any
capabilities that are not also available in SmaCC ?

If not, or if they aren't capabilities you need, then SmaCC would be a more
modern choice.

The Dolphin Smalltalk Verion of T-Gen maintained by Bob Jarvis
(http://www.nls.net/mp/jarvis/Bob/DolphinGoodies.htm) contains a
"PDFied" and HTML Version I once converted.

BTW: If you start from scratch with your grammar I would really advice
using SmaCC (http://www.refactory.com/Software/SmaCC/index.html) instead.

CU,

Udo

Having had a fair bit of experience with both TGen and SmaCC, I'd reccomend
SmaCC as well.

Yep, you are right, I saw that page but it was an abstract with links to the
.ps file.  I saw the pdf link and saved it.

The other piece is t-gen has method collisions when imported into current
vast.  Something that will need to be corrected.
