hi there,
Anyone knows about Parsers and there is many modules for that ... what I think.. are there a GENERATORS. What I mean is some technology like grammars that can easify text generation...
And better a combination of both parser-generator.. Yes I know I can use Perl for this.. but I think of some more declarative i.e. bison like syntax...
I need it for configuration files generation..

it should be possible to generate the text files in mixed fashon ..i.e. not from the begining to the end, but
conditionaly insert text depending on the current state in diferent part of the resulting file...
It should be possible also to generate a good indentation so that the resulting file is human readable..

etc..etc... :"))
any ideas

and if there is technologies for this is there a modules.. their names..

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
