Hi Axel,

The parsers are implemented in Java (using Java CUP to generate the PS 
parser and JAXB to handle the XML).  They're not available at the moment 
since I'm still in the process of updating everything to a recent BLD 
spec.  I will post some updates when I have done this.  I was thinking 
that an online tool could be a nice way to make them available for 
people to use.  Do you have any suggestions for this?
