What is the advantage of parsers that LALR that is greater than 1? I
have a grammar that requires more than one token of look ahead, is
there any way that it could be solved using yacc or Bison?

[Some grammars are easier to express with more than one token of lookahead.
You can rewrite gramars to LR(1), but sometimes at the cost of huge and
ugly bloat. -John]
