YACC

  • YACC stands for Yet Another Compiler Compiler.
  • YACC provides a tool to produce a parser for a given grammar.
  • YACC is a program designed to compile a LALR (1) grammar.
  • It is used to produce the source code of the syntactic analyzer of the language produced by LALR (1) grammar.
  • The input of YACC is the rule or grammar and the output is a C program.

These are some points about YACC:

Input: A CFG- file.y

Output: A parser y.tab.c (yacc)

  • The output file "file.output" contains the parsing tables.
  • The file "file.tab.h" contains declarations.
  • The parser called the yyparse ().
  • Parser expects to use a function called yylex () to get tokens.

The basic operational sequence is as follows:

YACC

This file contains the desired grammar in YACC format.

YACC 1

It shows the YACC program.

YACC 2

It is the c source program created by YACC.

YACC 3

C Compiler

YACC 4

Executable file that will parse grammar given in gram.Y
