    I am working on MS VC++ on NT and while compiling a very large
grammar I get the following error:

"sqlparser.y", line 12054: maximum table size (32767) exceeded

    After doing some research, we found out that in the source code for
bison v.1.25 there is a #define MAXTABLE 32767 in machine.h. We can
modify that value, but does anyone now what would the consequences be?
Is there another way to overcome this bison 32K limitation?

Many thanks
