A simple tree parser generator by Terence Parr <>.

SORCERER is suitable for translation problems lying between those solved by code generator generators and by full source-to-source translator generators. SORCERER generates simple, flexible, top-down, tree parsers that, in contrast to code generators, may execute actions at any point during a tree walk. SORCERER accepts extended BNF notation, allows predicates to direct the tree walk with semantic and syntactic context information, and does not rely on any particular intermediate form, parser generator, or other pre-existing application.

SORCERER is included in the Purdue Compiler-Construction Tool Set.

But there was so much more that was perceptive, not least the ever-presence of the Sorceress as Dido's enigmatic sister, hauntingly portrayed in the performance I saw (there were two casts) by Daniella Varadi, who surely has a promising future ahead of her Francesca Costigan played Dido herself as a neurotic wreck right from the start, and her carefully-produced voice led surely to a wonderful Lament, after which the homage of the entire cast to the queen's corpse was affecting in the extreme - with the Sorceress lacerated with remorse at the terrible outcome of her gleeful mischiefmaking.
