Well, in particular, I'm looking at the two parse trees in Fig. 4.6,

pg. 175 of the Dragon Book. If you just read the translation from the

leaves of the trees, the first gives

if(expr) then {if(expr) then {stmt} else {stmt}}

the second gives

if(expr) then {if(expr) then {stmt}} else {stmt}

APG actually generates the first tree. But during a depth-first

traversal of that tree, using different stack push/pop mechanisms at

the recursive "stmt" nodes, it's not hard to match the "else" either

of the two "then"s, effectively emulating the second tree during a

depth-first traversal of the first.
