Do you want to convert various kinds of BNF to other kinds of BNF? No?
Well imagine if you did! This would be the tool for you.
Input: Various BNF-like syntaxes
Output: Various BNF-like syntaxes, AST dumps, and Railroad Syntax Diagrams
See the /examples directory for grammars in various BNF dialects. These have been collated from various sources and are of various quality. BNF dialects tend to be poorly specified, and these examples are an attempt to keep a corpus of known-good examples for each dialect. kgt can’t parse them all yet.
kgt reads from stdin in dialect
-l ... and writes to stdout
; kgt -l bnf -e rrutf8 < examples.expr.bnf expr: │├──╮── term ── "+" ── expr ──╭──┤│ │ │ ╰───────── term ──────────╯ term: │├──╮── factor ── "*" ── term ──╭──┤│ │ │ ╰───────── factor ──────────╯ factor: │├──╮── "(" ── expr ── ")" ──╭──┤│ │ │ ╰──────── const ─────────╯ const: │├── integer ──┤│
and the same grammar output as SVG instead:
; kgt -l bnf -e svg < examples/expr.bnf > /tmp/expr.svg
Clone with submodules (contains required .mk files):
; git clone --recursive https://github.com/katef/kgt.git
To build and install:
; pmake -r install
You can override a few things:
; CC=clang PREFIX=$HOME pmake -r install
Building depends on:
Any BSD make. This includes OpenBSD, FreeBSD and NetBSD make(1) and sjg’s portable bmake (also packaged as pmake).
A C compiler. Any should do, but GCC and clang are best supported.
ar, ld, and a bunch of other stuff you probably already have.
