13.7.4 Bison – a better Yacc

Several packages provide a Yacc-compatible LALR parser generator in Debian:

  • bison: GNU LALR parser generator

  • byacc: The Berkeley LALR parser generator

  • btyacc: Backtracking parser generator based on byacc

References for bison:

  • info bison (tutorial)

  • bison(1)

You need to provide your own main() and yyerror(). main() calls yyparse() which calls yylex(), usually created with FleX.
