Lynn, you might want to take a look at my REFORMAT package; it's a
PL/I source code reformatter/pretty-printer. It contains a rudimentary
PL/I languafe parser in it that permits it to discover what is a PL/I
keyword, variable name, etc. in the source program it's reformatting.
You can get the package, including all of the PL/I source code and
documentaion via anonymous ftp from:
Just logon as 'anonymous' (no password required) and get the
REFORMAT.ZIP file from the default directory. The two procedures that
actually do the parsing are LEX and PARSE.
>Thanks in advance.
Hope this helps, and good luck.
