Released yesterday is version 8.2 of Antlrvsix and Trash. This release enhances the Trash shell further, making it look more and more like a full-fledged analogy to the Bash shell. However, Trash uses the lingua-franca of parse trees and XPath. In this release, one can now pipe output–parse trees–between commands. The
find command has been renamed to
xgrep to further the analogy with
grep. Various output commands have been added, such as
text. File globbing for
parse and other commands has been rewritten to be more like what you would see in Bash. I’ve added a
run command to generate, build, and run parsers.
All in all, I think Trash is finally becoming the tool I’ve envisioned for language development.
