Grame Lockley writes:
    I am very intrested to know how does one, assuming it is possible,
    use/implement inherited attributes in YACC.

I would suggest to read
        J. van Katwijk:
        "A preprocessor for YACC or
          A poor man's approach to parsing attributed grammars."
        Sigplan Notices, Vol 18, Nr 10, pp 12-15 (1983)

He describes how to implement a preprocessor which extends YACC
to process a (of course) limited kind of attribute grammar. The
grammar class covered is defined in
        R. Wilhelm:
        "LL- and LR-attributed Grammars"
        Hans Woessner (Ed.)
        "Programmiersprachen und Programmentwicklung"
        7. GI-Fachtagung, Maerz 1982 (Proceedings)
        Informatik-Fachberichte 53
        Berlin/Heidelberg/New York 1982 (Springer)

Hope this helps.
