Xtext is an actively used grammar language created in 2006. Xtext is an open-source software framework for developing programming languages and domain-specific languages (DSLs). Unlike standard parser generators, Xtext generates not only a parser, but also a class model for the abstract syntax tree, as well as providing a fully featured, customizable Eclipse-based IDE.Xtext is being developed in the Eclipse Project as part of the Eclipse Modeling Framework Project and is licensed under the Eclipse Public License..

terminal ID: 
    '^'?('a'..'z'|'A'..'Z'|'_')('a'..'z'|'A'..'Z'|'_'|'0'..'9')*;
 
terminal INT returns ecore::EInt: 
    ('0'..'9')+;
 
terminal STRING: 
    '"' ( '\\'('b'|'t'|'n'|'f'|'r'|'u'|'"'|"'"|'\\') | !('\\'|'"') )* '"' |
    "'" ( '\\'('b'|'t'|'n'|'f'|'r'|'u'|'"'|"'"|'\\') | !('\\'|"'") )* "'";
 
terminal ML_COMMENT: 
    '/*' -> '*/';
 
terminal SL_COMMENT: 
    '//' !('\n'|'\r')* ('\r'? '\n')?;
