zic deals exactly nothing for me right now. Is there a Windows binary
available somewhere? Are the generated zic files available? Could
somebody assist me in building zic for Windows?

BTW, your comments and answers to my questions have so far been very
interesting and I think they might be helpful to others as well who
consider implementing their own parser for X#++. I've been reading the
project website which doesn't contain any of this background
information. I didn't know what zic does, I didn't know the format of
those generated files nor where the specification of the input files is,
I wasn't clear about the problems my implementation is going to have.
All this could have helped me in advance. And I'm sure someone else will
come along in a year and will ask the same questions as me. As probably
somebody did a year ago. I'm sure you can answer them as well but for
those, and for those who don't ask, this information would help. Give it
a catchy title and truly interested people (or those already
experiencing problems) will read it.
