1.  An Exploration of Recursive Descent Parsing (by Benjamin Kowarsch)

This presentation will give a general overview of common parsing techniques and examine RD parsing in further detail. In particular it will show how to design, visualise and troubleshoot grammars suitable for RD parsing and how to transform such grammars into handwritten RD parsers. It will also give a brief overview how to use ANTLRworks for grammar evaluation and troubleshooting. Finally it will introduce an unnamed free open source script that generates publishing quality syntax diagrams. 

2.  X-COM and its open source remakes (by Andreas Kieckens)

X-COM is an old DOS game that combines world-wide strategy with small squad turn-based tactics. It is not *too* famous, but people who've played it (including the presenter) often praise it as one of the best games ever made. Over the years, a lot of game developers have attempted to recreate its magic. Several of these projects are open source and even more can run on Linux. This presentation will give an overview and show some of these games in action. 


Other items on the agenda are:
1. Introduction of new members, news about Linux/Open Source,
   general announcements, Q&A
2. Auction (bring any gear that would would like to donate to TLUG) 

All Linux users and supporters of open source code and free software
are invited to attend this Tokyo Linux Users Group (TLUG) meeting.
Membership is open to anyone. There are no membership dues or entrance

After the meeting, we will continue chatting over a few beers.

About TLUG
TLUG is a non-profit, non-political organization established in June
of 1994 to exchange information on the use of Linux and Free Software
Foundation tools. TLUG has an active mailing list, home page, and
regular physical meetings. Discussions are primarily held in English,
but non-English speakers are encouraged to come and participate.
We especially want to encourage Japanese people to attend and will make
efforts to support a bilingual meeting.

month on the 2nd Friday.
