+++ WARNING - WARNING - WARNING - WARNING - WARNING - WARNING - WARNING +++ The '-p' option (generate PERL code) has been changed to '-P'. This is for compatibility with versions of yacc that use '-p' to specify a new prefix for generated symbols. Also, be sure to edit the Makefile. It has changed a bit since 1.8.1 With that out of the way... The '-p' option is now used to change the prefix of generated symbols to something other than the default of "yy". See the man page for further details. I apologize for breaking any makefiles but, I believe that '-p' for prefix changing has been around longer than '-p' for generating PERL. This has been compiled and tested on: Amiga 3000 with AmigaDOS 2.1 and SAS C 6.1 SUN SPARC systems running SunOS 4.1_PSR_A and 4.1. with the bundled compiler, gcc 2.3.3, and clcc Any modifications to make it more portable are welcome. Please report any bugs to rick@IMD.Sterling.COM Change History for PERL Berkeley yacc: 1.8 first version of Berkeley yacc 1.8 with PERL support 1.8.1 reformatted Makefile add warning about '-r' option with PERL code generation escape '$' in state name table in PERL code updated PERL version of getdate.y in test directory replace a hard coded value of 13 in reader.c with 'sizeof("$end") + sizeof("$accept")' (let the compiler figure out the size) 1.8.2 changed '-p' (PERL) switch to '-P' added '-p prefix' switch to allow changing symbol prefix in generated code fixed small memory leak in copy_action function in reader.c base the name of temporary files on the program name (PROGRAM variable in Makefile) instead of always using a prefix of 'yacc' out of memory checks now take place in only 3 functions instead of all over the place (added my_calloc, my_malloc, and my_realloc functions) added manpage rule to Makefile that generates a manual page for the name in the Makefile variable PROGRAM. (see Makefile for further details) added tests rule to Makefile that runs the new yacc program on the yacc files in the test directory and compares the output to the files in the test directory added Makefile to test directory updated PERL version of getdate.y in test directory ported to the AMIGA using SAS C 6.1 added library that contains main() and yyerror()
