Easy fix is to differentiate between the "[", "[[", "\[", and "\[[" in
the lexical analysis phase so that each is assigned a representative
symbol (and ditto that for their partners).


then you have


...
exp -> LEFT_BRACKET exptext RIGHT_BRACKET
code -> DBL_LEFT_BRACKET codetext DBL_RIGHT_BRACKET
...


You could do it with the gramatic syntax, but it would be trickier.
What tools are you using? Are you hand coding? Is your parser
recursive decent? Is this a homework assignment?
