I have been working on rewriting the bison y.tab.c file in assembly for
a low-powered CPU and then discovered byacc. Supposedly byacc will parse
faster than bison. If this is true, does anyone have some performance
timings on what improvment I can expect if I move from bison to byacc?
[I'd certainly expect byacc to be faster than bison, since the parser isn't
encrusted with a lot of extra crud. Why not spend an afternoon doing some
experiments and let us know what the relative speeds are. -John]
