Here you can find a proof-of-concept implementation of ModelCC for Java. The provided implementation employs an optimized Earley-like chart parser, a dynamic programming algorithm for parsing context-free grammars that runs in cubic time for arbitrary context-free grammars, in quadratic time for unambiguous context-free grammars, and in linear time for most LR(k) grammars.

ModelCC release notes
- Comprehensive JUnit test suite, including all the examples in the ModelCC tutorial (see test.modelcc.language.*).
- Improved lexer API for unlimited data streams (org.modelcc.lexer.Tokenizer), available both for FLEX and LAMB lexers.
- Line number and offset information for debugging input streams (org.modelcc.lexer.Token)
- Language grammar decoupled from Java object instantiation.
- Generic Model & JavaModelReader, with LanguageModel & JavaLanguageReader subclasses for context-free languages.
- Improved message logging facilities (org.modelcc.io.MessageLogger).
- Support for separate compilation by means of predefined model elements, e.g.
Parser<Expression> parser = createParser();
parser.add(new Constant("pi", 3.1415927));
assertEquals(3.1415927, parser.parse("pi").eval(), EPSILON);
assertEquals(2*3.1415927, parser.parse("2*pi").eval(), EPSILON);
