Does anybody know a Bison variant that support C++ and produce
reentrant parser class.

In the old time (before the web !) I've hacked bison to build
bison++-1.21-7 which was based on a few code generator change and a
pair of skeletons full of macro.... for thos who ask wether this
product have evolved, and is support, I'll say that it have not
evolved since 93 (woof... gettig old!) and that a cannot support it
properly at work...

since flex2.4 flex support C++ very nicely (much simpler than I did
with flex++-2.3.7-8) and this is the best solution

however what is the best bison version that support C++ and generate
class, like flex2.5 does ?

I've heard about andrew bison-A1 in the old time, but which is the
most widespread today ?
