does not accept?
Pizza binaries be used as applets?

How does the performance of the Pizza
compiler compare to that of javac? How does the generated

Pizza compiler does not seem to automatically compile auxiliary
classes, like javac does.

I'd like to use
Pizza to generate abstract syntax trees (AST's) for Java programs.
Is there a compiler switch that will output AST's? If not, how can
I access the them?
