Does anyone have little (i.e. minimal) examples for lex and yacc input
that expose errors in lex or yacc? That is, are there nice little examples
of input that cause lex or yacc to produce a wrong scanner or parser, or
cause them to terminate with an error?

You can mail to me, I will summarize anything interesting to the net.
