  We are trying to support text parsers for slightly differing
syntax. I was looking at developing an engine where we can supply the
grammar at runtime. I know Yacc/Bison is at compile time, is there
some project/working proof of concept to achieve this? Any help is

[There was a lot of work on extensible compilers that could
extend the grammar on the fly in the 1970s. It's not hard to
do, but it turns out not to be very useful. -John]
