An LR-based parser generator for arbitrary context-free grammars that generates parsers by need and handles modifications to its input grammar by updating the parser it has generated so far is described. The need for these techniques is discussed in the context of interactive language definition environments. All required algorithms are presented. Measurements are given comparing their performance with that of conventional techniques
