All my compiler books are 20+ years old. Only one (an early version of the
Dragon book) even mentions Yacc and Lex. Do the newer books address VB/VBA?
Can I even find a Yacc grammar for VBA?
I'm looking for a way to, in a VBA project:
1. Create a list of all variables in a module, perhaps identifying the type.
2. Create a list of all variables, identifying the type of each, in a
3. Parse each statement into its components.
Note that I do not have a background in Computer Science, however, I
was actively involved in the standards for a number of programming
languages, in particular BASIC and Fortran. I only read some of the
compiler books for background.
Are there any books I need to buy?
