Has anybody tried to build a parser, using yacc, from the latest available
ISO-ANSI-C++ grammar. Seems like there is a basic problem in parsing a
simple valid class/struct declaration. Also there are too many shift/reduce
and reduce/reduce conflicts.
I am planning to write a parser to parse a C++ source file.
[In previous discussions, people seemed to feel that the grammar of C++ is
too messy and ambiguous to parse with yacc. There are versions of yacc with
backup, and more powerful parser tools which are up to the task. See the
