do "real world" compilers like the VC++ series use Lex and Yacc?
I know that it is recommened to "hand code" a lexer for use with
YACC, but what about products from MS, Borland, and the GNU
compilers are they written in YACC? I couldn't imagine a C grammar
written without it ( though Im sure it originally was ).
