( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I was under the impression that its more BNF than EBNF ... whatever that means :)

meaning you don't use * to specify OPTIONAL rule, or zero or more times ... or whatever you mean by it :) see and

With that in mind I come up with something which doesn't croak on the SLIF; I've no idea what it does :)

sub get_grammar { return q{ :start ::= Alias :discard ~ ws Alias ::= 'User_Alias' User_Alias repeatUser_Alias | 'User_Alias' User_Alias repeatUser_Alias ::= manyColonUser_Alias ### repeated OPTIONALLY repeatUser_Alias ::= ### repeated many times manyColonUser_Alias ::= colonUser_Alias* colonUser_Alias ::= ':' User_Alias User_Alias ::= NAME '=' User_List User_List ::= User | User ',' User_List User ::= <user name> ws ~ [\s]+ NAME ~ <name_firstchar><name_restchars> name_firstchar ~ [A-Z] name_restchars ~ [A-Z0-9_]* <user name> ~ <username_firstchar><username_restchars> username_firstchar ~ [a-z] username_restchars ~ [a-z0-9_]* };

I'm eager to learn what you learn about this :)
