ABSTRACT

  SpecPars is an Ada specification parser and token generator 
tool for the MS-Windows Meridian OpenAda compiler. It can
be used to generate a stream of tokens from an Ada package 
specification file. SpecPars works by creating a dynamic 
link via a DLL to your client application. By collecting 
the tokens produced by SpecPars you can search for keywords, 
Ada identifiers, etc. for use in another Ada tool.
  
SPECPARS.ZIP file contains:
  specpars.exe  -- Specification Parser executable
  specplib.dll  -- Specification Parser dynamic link library
  specplib.lib  -- Specification Parser import library for 
                   static linking
  specpars.ada  -- Specification Parser DLL specification 
  spec.y        -- Grammar for Ada specifications
  specpars.doc  -- Installation and parsing instructions
  
  ADAWIN.ZIP contains the paper "Ada Integration for an MS-
Windows Tool Framework" in which SpecPars is used as an
example.
