Racc is a LALR(1) parser generator. It is written in Ruby itself, and generates Ruby programs. NOTE: Ruby 1.8+ comes with the Racc runtime module. You can run your parsers generated by racc 1.4.x out of the box.
* Ruby 1.8+ (*) make and C compiler.
gem install: $ gem install racc
Racc comes with a simple calculator. To compile this at the shell: $ racc -o calc sample/calc.y This process takes few seconds (or less). Then type: $ ruby calc ... Does it work? For details about Racc, see the HTML documents under 'doc.en/' and sample grammar files under 'sample/'.

Any kind of bug reports are welcome. If you find a bug in Racc, please email me. Your grammar file, and debug output genereted by "racc -g", will be helpful. Minero Aoki firstname.lastname@example.org http://i.loveruby.net
