Thomas,

As a follow up to this, I did a quick search to see if there was a grammar processor for RPG in one of the most popular grammar tools out there called ANTLR - http://www.antlr.org/ and there doesn't seem to be any.

There is a grammar processor for nearly every other language except for RPG, not surprising to me though as it seems pretty rare to find RPG around these days.

Complete list of ANTLR grammar's supported:
http://www.antlr3.org/grammar/list.html

There are a few references of people attempting it, but so far no conclusive proof anyone has created one unfortunately :(

Someone inquiring on the possibility:

Thomas,

I read the full article here: http://onlinepresent.org/proceedings/vol29_2013/54.pdf

He is just stating an example of how one would convert an example RPG program to GraphViz's DOT notation.

There is no proof he actually created RPG lexical processing program that actually does this. Atleast the article doesn't give any indication other than the one very specific example in the paper.

Grade F until I can see the code that actually parses RPG into DOT notation.

Matt

Has anyone seen this paper? Done by what looks like a student in Thailand and an instructor. I am a bit lost on what exactly should be downloaded from www.eclipse.org/kepler/

that is then fed into GRAPHVIZ produce.

www.graphviz.org/documentation.php

I am lost on how exactly what or what exactly out of ECLIPSE is used to take the original RPG source to generate a DOT markup language file that then appears to be fed into the GRAPHVIZ product for program flowcharts that is much better than gets generated in HAWKEYE.
