( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Well, you could use Yapp or YALALR to create a LALR parser for you according to a specific (Yacc like) grammar. Since yours is already clearly defined in BNF there shouldn't be much trouble converting it.

Since you didn't specify a particular database, I assume you're free to choose. In that case I would suggest MySQL, since it has this nice RegExp feature, where you can query according to some (simplified) regular expression.
This would allow you to convert your parse tree into a valid (MySQL) regexp. Simply select everything which looks like your regexp and your finished.

Hope it helps (a bit),

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
