I don't understand the last remark in the reply - headers don't
exist. To my knowledge the reqiured headers are supplied with the flex
and bison distributions. The two problems I experienced was ..

Let Bison generate a header file with token values (and YYSTYPE) - if You
build a parser using a flex generated scanner.

The skeleton file for Bison - You really should start with the simple
skeleton and not the bison.hairy - to get a clean compile.
