NAMEyapps - create a Python module from a grammar file
SYNOPSISyapps [ --dump ] [ --use-devel-grammar ] [ -fcontext-insensitive-scanner ] [ -p pid ] [ -f ] input.g [ output.py ] name
DESCRIPTION--dump Dump out grammar information --use-devel-grammar Use the devel grammar parser from yapps_grammar.py instead of the stable grammar from grammar.py -fcontext-insensitive-scanner Scan all tokens (see docs) yapps generates a Python program which will parse a given grammar.
OPTIONS--dump Dump the grammar information to stdout. --use-devel-grammar Use the grammar file in ./yapps_grammar.py instead of yapps/grammar.py. This option is useful for testing new grammar parsers. (Yes, yapps' parser is itself written with yapps...) -fcontext-insensitive-scanner Set the option to use the non-context-sensitive scanner.
CAVEATSyapps implements a recursive-descent scanner.
HISTORYWritten by Amit J. Patel <firstname.lastname@example.org>. This version was enhanced by Matthias Urlichs <email@example.com>. It is not downwards-compatible with the original yapps2 (yet) and uses a different runtime library. See the change log for details. YAPPS(1)
