Some weeks ago I posted a request for information on versions of lex and
yacc that can be used with C++. This is the result.
Most people mentioned lex++ and yacc++ (such obvious names :-) that are
available from Sun Microsystems. Fewer people mentioned versions of lex
and yacc from MKS, which can handle both C and C++. Some people said that
GNU's flex and bison could handle C++, but I'm unable to verify this.
Thank you one and all for your help.
[The distributed versions of flex and bison handle only C. Since the
source is widely distributed, it's possible someone has hacked them up for
C++. It wouldn't be particularly difficult. MKS does indeed do C++ and
Pascal as well as C, but the C++ isn't particularly OOPy; it's similar to
the C version. -John]
