While this question is being asked I would like to know if any
compiler/parser textbooks deal with grammars that use regular
expression operators. This is particularly relavent to LL based
parsing because most LL based parsing tools now support extended CFGs.
Note that LR based parsing algorithms can also be modified to support
extended CFGs but this is more difficult and less likely to be found
in a textbook.
Why has LR based parser generator tools that directly support (that do
not translate the grammar into non-extended form) regular expression
operators so uncommon anyway; other than that they are fairly complex?
