Andrus requested that the president take part in a public information campaign for the YACC to increase the credibility and public awareness of the program.
This is similar to the problems encountered trying to debug a compiler lexical analyzer and parser written with LEX and YACC.
Compiler Construction Using Java, JavaCC, and Yacc covers every topic essential to learning compilers from the ground up and is accompanied by a powerful and flexible software package for evaluating projects, as well as several tutorials, well-defined projects, and test cases.
Also, several LR parser generators are readily available, most notably Yacc [Johnson 1975] which creates LALR parsers.
In the former course, C is not entirely abandoned, and lex and yacc are employed.
