I'm having some problems searching the mailing list archive here on
SourceForge. Seems particular to this project. Whenever I fill out the form
and search, I get a message saying it's unable to connect to the search
server. Has anyone else seen this? It doesn't seem particular to the browser
or OS I'm using either -- I've tried a few.
Since I can't search and I hopefully have somebody's attention, I was
wondering if any work had been done with Semantic and Actionscript. Having
code completion in Emacs for AS that worked as well as FlashDevelop
(unfortunately Windows only) would be amazing.
I found a reference to 'wisent actionscript' commented out in the .emacs of
the person who did the actionscript mode:
Digging through the code for FlashDevelop, I found the plugin for code
completion and what appears to be a sensible ANTLR grammar file (as3.g)
which is borrowed from another site that appears to have not been updated in
I'm guessing the grammar would need to be converted to an acceptable Wisent
style grammar to be useful right? From reading a little on ANTLR and
Bison/Wisent, I know that this would require going from LL to LR parsing.
Difficulty? I'm familiar with the basics of grammars/lexing/parsing, but I'm
fuzzy on specific tools and practices.
It'd be awesome if someone has beat me to the punch on all this, but I'm
stumped where their work is if they have. What would need to happen to have
context sensitive completion of the user's code and also the Actionscript
core libraries? I noticed that FlashDevelop also has a sub-project for AS3
intrisics for this purpose.

I don't know what might be up with the mailing list. It is probably
temporary. There is also a GMANE archive somewhere.
I don't know of any actionscript grammars, or what it looks like.
I'm also not too familiar with the differences between Antlr and
Bison. If you know of any external stand-alone action script tagging
tools, like ecscope, then it might be possible to use that as a quick
way to get what you want.
Your best bet is to start looking here to add actionscript support:
It appears you have already completed step 0. :)
If actionscript is a structured typed language, then wisent is the
way to go for supporting it.
