A GNU general-purpose parser generator.
Bison is a general purpose parser generator that converts a grammar
description for an LALR(1) context-free grammar into a C program to
parse that grammar. Bison can be used to develop a wide range of
language parsers, from ones used in simple desk calculators to complex
programming languages. Bison is upwardly compatible with Yacc, so any
correctly written Yacc grammar should work with Bison without any
changes. If you know Yacc, you shouldn't have any trouble using
Bison. You do need to be very proficient in C programming to be able
to use Bison. Bison is only needed on systems that are used for
If your system will be used for C development, you should install

This directory contains Bison skeletons: the general shapes of the
different parser kinds, that are specialized for specific grammars by
the bison program.
Currently, there are only three supported skeletons:
It used to be named bison.simple: it corresponds to C Yacc
compatible LALR(1) parsers.

Bison requires GNU m4 1.4.3 or later. See:
Bison can work with pre-1.4.3 distributions of GNU m4 if they are
sufficiently patched, but if you encounter a bug with an older
Changes in version 2.3, 2006-06-05:
* GLR grammars should now use `YYRECOVERING ()' instead of `YYRECOVERING',
for compatibility with LALR(1) grammars.
* It is now documented that any definition of YYSTYPE or YYLTYPE should
be to a type name that does not contain parentheses or brackets.
