Hi all,

    I was wondering how people define grammars. i.e. say I have a small
set of strings which constitute a language. What would be the usual
way to go about defining the grammar for that language? Is there a
tool that automates this process i.e. converting input strings to a
grammar specification.?

[If your language really consists only of a fixed set of strings,
the grammar is S1 | S2 | S3 | ... SN where Si are the strings.
Interesting languages have recursive syntax definitions. -John]
