Yes, I read something to the effect that once you reach an EOF you
must reset yyin (or something to that effect). This sort of begs the
question of how you'd do error recovery when you get a syntax error on
the last token of the input. Does this seem like the expected
behavior to you? I don't have any more input to give it, so I don't
know what I'm supposed to set yyin to once I've reached EOF.
[You can call yyrestart(yyin) but based on offline discussion this sounds
to me like a smashed pointer bug. -John]
