How do I use custom .frame files?

Oct 14, 2009 at 5:42 PM

Hi, I just installed your Coco/R integration plugin. Works flawlessly using the built-in scanner.frame and parser.frame, but for my application I need a custom frame (mainly to specify 'partial' on the scanner and parser classes). How am I supposed to do this? From the sparse "documentation" on the home page, I've gathered that the frame files should have the same name as the grammar file.

With a grammar file "TinCal.atg" that would be "TinCal.parser.frame" wouldn't it? It tried this, but then the generated "TinCal.Parser.cs" file disappeared from the list of generated files and I got warnings about CocoR not being able to delete my "TinCal.parser.frame" file:

Error deleting file 'TinCal.parser.frame

Did I misunderstand the instructions on the "Coco/R for Visual Studio" homepage?

Thank you for your time.

You will have to create a file called Scanner.frame or Parser.frame in the folder where your .atg file lies. This is the easiest way to do it or use TinCal.Parser.Frame.
