While going through the book, "Principles of compiler Design", I found
the following information in the article discussing about "Transition
diagram as a plan for recursive-descent parsers".
There we said that, If we get a non deterministic transition diagram
from the grammar, it is not possible to construct the deterministic
equivalent of it. The reason is, we can't just follow the subset-
construction method that is applied to make an NFA to DFA, because it
can't remember how many recursive calls are made.
I couldn't understand this fully. Do we need to remember anything such
while we go for subset-construction method ? Please help me
