Hi, Tomaz. No, KTurtle has its own parser. It does not use scripting or 
Kross. What we do offer is automatic translation of the names of the 
commands in the scripts, and this is also managed internally.
What could be a good path for rewriting the parser is QLALR. I have 
never used it, but the article seems very interesting, and it is 
apparently used internally in Qt to parse QtScript and the QXMLStream:


But at the same time, I am not sure it would be possible to keep the 
automatic translation we have now using anything other than our built-in 
parser and interpreter.
