I've just finished my project in Lex/YACC and have to come up with reasons why
I chose to write my compiler in Lex/YACC. Trouble is, I don't know what the
alternatives are, if any, and what advantages Lex/YACC has over them.
Any help would be much 'preciated.
Thanks in advnace.

[There's lots of other tools, and the best thing you can say about
lex (or preferably flex) and yacc is that they're relatively simple
and quote widely available. They don't win any prizes for function
or ease of use. -John]
