Common Text Transformation Library

Common Text Transformation Library is a library of C++ classes and functions to parse and modify STL strings. CTTL substring classes may be compared, inserted, replaced, and parsed with EBNF grammars. The compiled program implements a fast, thread-safe, re-entrant recursive descent parser.
