As far as I know, M204 is MUCH more than just a DBMS. It is an interpreted
progarmming language with a large DBMS thrown in. It is used quite a bit
by the NAVY and some other government agencies.

I do not think you will find a yacc grammar for it. If you are planning to
create a parser for it, I am afraid you will find it VERY difficult unless
you place SEVERE restraints or limitations on it.

It is a huge language with some very hideous capabilities. I know. I was
involved with writing a parser for M204 for reverse engineering purposes a
few years ago. If you (or anyone else) is interested in this stuff send me
an email or give me a call.
