From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

      A simple tree parser generator by Terence Parr
     SORCERER is suitable for translation problems lying between
     those solved by code generator generators and by full
     source-to-source translator generators.  SORCERER generates
     simple, flexible, top-down, tree parsers that, in contrast
     to code generators, may execute actions at any point during a
     tree walk.  SORCERER accepts extended BNF notation, allows
     predicates to direct the tree walk with semantic and
     syntactic context information, and does not rely on any
     particular intermediate form, parser generator, or other
     pre-existing application.
     SORCERER is included in the Purdue Compiler-Construction Tool
     Version: 1.00B

     the lot of others. (See DIVINATION.)
       In Dan. 2:2 it is the rendering of the Hebrew mekhashphim,
     i.e., mutterers, men who professed to have power with evil
     spirits. The practice of sorcery exposed to severest punishment
     (Mal. 3:5; Rev. 21:8; 22:15).
