I have a BNF version for C (copied from the net) which I eventually will 
use to create a C2O (various versions of Oberon).

I am currently working on a FORTRAN to Oberon translator but don't hold 
your breath.

I have modified Coco/R (Hanspeter Mössenböck) and am looking at a 
different front end for the scanner based on a parallel search algorthm 
that generates a finite state machine (similar to Coco's but one that I 
can control more directly).  This algorithm was developed by a student 
of Donald Knuth's back in 1977.

I hope to make available the FORTRAN translator for the high energy 
physics community at CERN.

But again, this is a low level background project that I get to when I 
find some free time.
