Book Description

This updated edition has an expanded 'Concepts' and 'Grammar Files' sections, and a greatly expanded 'Debugging Your Parser' section. There is also a new FAQ section added to the appendix. Some obsolete material was removed as well.

Bison is a general-purpose parser generator that can help the C programmer develop a wide range of language parsers, from those used in simple desktop calculators to complex programming languages.

The Bison manual provides a quick overview of the theory behind context-free grammars and semantic values. It has both an introductory tutorial section with examples and a reference section which explores parts of Bison in detail. This book teaches you:

  • Basic concepts of context-free grammars
  • Basic concepts of semantic values and actions
  • Bison grammar rules and syntax
  • Stages in writing and running Bison grammars
  • C-Language interface to the parser function yyparse()
  • How to parse more than one language in the same program
  • How to detect when an operation for a new node type was not implemented
  • How to ensure that a new operation covers all existing node types adequately
  • The Lexical Analyzer Function yylex()
  • Writing rules for error recovery and yyerror()
