Using ANTLR Like A Professional: Basic Edition


Parsing allows you to extract the data you want from a textual input in any format. It could be a text file, a binary file or source code. You could parse a Nginx or Apache log file, a JPG file, a Java, Python or any computer language file.

Knowing how to parse means knowing how to analyze and understand any format.

You can build a parser from scratch, but using a tool to generate a parser is much easier and quicker.


ANTLR is the parser generator tool you want to use to build your parser.

At the forefront of research, but also production ready and battle tested.

Created by Terence Parr and developed since 1989.

It is more than just a library.

ANTLR is a whole set of tools to help be productive: from debugging grammars to visualize the result of parsing.

It hides the complications and the details.

You do not need to know the theory behind parsing algorithms. You do not need to know what left-recursive expressions are or what is context-sensitive parsing. No need to write unnaturally complicated rules.

You can build any grammar you need to be productive and ANTLR will make it work.

Use it in every project.

You can write just one grammar and let ANTLR generate parsers in many languages (Java, C#, Python, etc.)

Used by thousand of developers.

There is an entire repository full of grammars ready to use, containing data format and even entire languages.


Kudos. I’m actually really liking ANTLR! I have a pretty darn good velocity with a rapid prototyping project I am doing in my Google 20% time. For example, I just discovered a feature in rewrite rules that does exactly what I need. It took me about 5 minutes to get this to work and remove an ugly wart from my grammar. Hats off!

Just wanted to take the opportunity to say thanks. ANTLR is a BIG improvement over yacc/lex, and your support for it most commendable. Managed to get my tired old brain around it in a day. Nice work!

Sure, a tool makes you create something quickly, but you need to learn how to use it. You need documentation and use it to learn all the tricks to create a project that works well. And this takes time and frustration, searching the web (and StackOverflow) hoping to find a tutorial or answer.

This is especially true for a professional tool like ANTLR. A lot of the information out there is geared toward parsing experts, people that use parsing everyday in their work, people that already know what and how to do and they just need to know what function to calls.

But what if you do not know all the theory? You get lost, jumping from page to page trying to get things working.

We feel your pain, because that is how we were forced to learn. But we can give you a better way.

That is where this course comes in. It saves you time and give you the answers you need to create and use parsers with ANTLR. It explains the theory you need to work, it puts together all the necessary information. It shows how to use ANTLR and the tricks that save you time.

All the years of experience and none of the frustration.

You are a professional developer. Your time is very valuable. Save money by learning in a few hours what would take weeks of trials and errors.
