 for parser generator
From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (18 March 2015) :

  parser generator
  
     A program which takes a formal description of a grammar
     (e.g. in BNF) and outputs source code for a parser which will
     recognise valid strings obeying that grammar and perform
     associated actions.  Unix's yacc is a well known example.
