YACC(1) BSD Reference Manual YACC(1)
yacc - an LALR(1) parser generator
yacc [-dlrtv] [-b prefix] [-o output_file] [-p symbol_prefix] filename
yacc reads the grammar specification in the file filename and generates an LR(1) parser for it. The parsers consist of a set of LALR(1) parsing tables and a driver routine written in the C programming language. yacc normally writes the parse tables and the driver routine to the file y.tab.c. The options are as follows: -b prefix The -b option changes the prefix prepended to the output file names to the string denoted by prefix. The default prefix is the character y. -d The -d option causes the header file y.tab.h to be written. -l If the -l option is not specified, yacc will insert #line direc- tives in the generated code. The #line directives let the C com- piler relate errors in the generated code to the user's original code. If the -l option is specified, yacc will not insert the #line directives. #line directives specified by the user will be retained. -o output_file The -o option specifies an explicit name for the parser's output file name instead of the default. The names of the other output files are constructed from output_file as described under the -d and -v options. -p symbol_prefix The -p option changes the prefix prepended to yacc-generated sym- bols to the string denoted by symbol_prefix. The default prefix is the string yy. -r The -r option causes yacc to produce separate files for code and tables. The code file is named y.code.c, and the tables file is named y.tab.c. -t The -t option changes the preprocessor directives generated by yacc so that debugging statements will be incorporated in the compiled code. -v The -v option causes a human-readable description of the generat- ed parser to be written to the file y.output.
TMPDIR Name of directory where temporary files are to be created.
The names of the tables generated by this version of yacc are "yylhs", "yylen", "yydefred", "yydgoto", "yysindex", "yyrindex", "yygindex", "yytable", and "yycheck". Two additional tables, "yyname" and "yyrule", are created if YYDEBUG is defined and non-zero.
y.code.c y.tab.c y.tab.h y.output /tmp/yacc.aXXXXXXXXXX /tmp/yacc.tXXXXXXXXXX /tmp/yacc.uXXXXXXXXXX
If there are rules that are never reduced, the number of such rules is written to the standard error. If there are any LALR(1) conflicts, the number of conflicts is also written to the standard error.
