BNF for QV script (for beautifier)?

I'm writing a simple prettifier (handles only specific but useful cases) for QlikView scripts. It would be a whole lot easier and more accurate with access to the full BNF (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Backus%E2%80%93Naur_Form) syntax for scripts.

Does such a beast exist in the wild? Even just an accurate spec of field name allowable characters would be helpful, do you have any pointers where to find this?

Thanks,

Kristian

Got it - that is really useful, thanks.

Do you have or do you know where I can find a list of these kinds of QlikView secret handshake commands???
