Forwarding a question for a friend. Replies can be by email, I'll post a
summary. I checked the FAQ, and it doesn't seem to mention any
machine-specific versions.

I've got a version of BSD Yacc. It compiles & executes correctly on a PC.
[After modifying word size and bit operators in defs.h] It compiles &
works semi-correctly on a VAX VMS system, but it won't work on all of test
cases. I had to modify the mechanism by which it derives temporaryfile
names because looking for '/' as a directory delimiter doesn't work in
VMS. Does anyone have a VMS-Specific version of BSD-yacc they would be
willing to share? (diffs suitable for patching BSD-yacc version 1.8 would
be great!)

Thanks in advance,
