I've just read ISO/IEC 14977 and wonder how useful this standard
IMO these people missed to separate lexer from parser issues. With
such a distinction everything would have been simpler, shorter and
more precise to describe?
Furthermore I would like to hear opinions about the differences
between formal lexer and parser grammars. IMO it's not a good idea to
use the same meta language for both kinds of grammars, even if it were
possible to construct such a super language?
[It is my impression that this is intended to provide guidance to the
authors of standards documents and textbooks. I agree that it's not
suitable for feeding to a parser generator. -John]
