Problems when creating ANSI-C like grammar [message #1391122] Mon, 30 June 2014 13:25

I am working on a project where we are trying to create an IDE and some analysis tools for a scripting language that is very close to ANSI-C.

For this project I have taken the ANTLR-grammar I found here

https:// (sorry, cannot post it as a link)

and converted it to serve Ctl (the name of the scripting language) .
I had to do some minor adaptions, but in general it should be VERY close to the C grammar.

Some specifics about the language:
- there are no structs, enums or typedefs
- the language supports exceptions
- there are no pointers
- there are &-parameters in function definitions ("out"-parameters)

When I am trying to compile the language I run into
"java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: GC overhead limit exceeded"
exceptions and also
error(10): internal error: org.antlr.tool.Grammar.createLookaheadDFA( could not even do k=1 for decision 39; reason: timed out (>10000ms)

Does somebody have an idea how I can debug this or change the xtext to stop the errors from happening?

I am looking forward to your replies!

Thank you,

PS: I am using the following options in my the MWE2 workflow:
antlrParam = "-Xconversiontimeout" antlrParam = "10000"
    options = {
        backtrack = true
    	memoize = true
    	kAsString = "2"
