  From  The  Free  On-line  Dictionary  of  Computing  (13  Mar  01)  [foldoc]: 
    A  simple  tree  {parser  generator}  by  Terence  Parr 
  SORCERER  is  suitable  for  translation  problems  lying  between 
  those  solved  by  {code  generator}  generators  and  by  full 
  source-to-source  translator  generators.  SORCERER  generates 
  simple,  flexible,  top-down,  tree  {parser}s  that  in  contrast 
  to  code  generators,  may  execute  actions  at  any  point  during  a 
  tree  walk.  SORCERER  accepts  {extended  BNF}  notation,  allows 
  {predicate}s  to  direct  the  tree  walk  with  {semantic}  and 
  {syntactic}  context  information,  and  does  not  rely  on  any 
  particular  intermediate  form  parser  generator,  or  other 
  pre-existing  application.
