hey --

I was wondering if anybody had lots of experience with using perl-byacc to
generated perl code...

I am having great conceptual difficulty with this -- mainly because byacc
is designed with structures in mind, and has 'typing' to handle symbol
tables, etc.

Hence, when you try to make these same symbol tables with perl... perl's
associative arrays don't work because byacc is looking for *pointers* --
not actual values (except in the case of ints)

Thanks for any help...
