First, I have done a lexer and start the jay for parser.
But I really prefer to done it manually but it help to understand all part
of code.
I have name the project Mono.JScript.Compiler for moment.
My Lexer work and NUNIT test work on it but for parser it an other thing...
I use ECMA-262 v3 to do the lexer and parser.
OK to change to have the same public interface than M$ compiler.
I will see it and try to go manually now ;)

thanks for feed back ;)
