Antlr Grammars for Fun and Profit

Recently at work I had to work on files in our legacy system. Those files, being part of a proprietary product, are unknown to any editor or pretty printer that you can find. And most of them are not formatted nicely, if at all. Being a lazy developer I really love eclipse’s code formatting features, because, hey, it takes away a lot of tedious and annoying formatting. Also, I think properly formatted files are easier to understand, maintain and fix.
