                          Bison

                          Compiler
Abstract                : This is a replacement for the bison.simple grammar skeleton
                          with builtin error-repairing mechanisms which use the 
                          tables built by bison to replace and delete symbols as
                          appropriate to recover from errors encountered.
                          
                          No change is required to any grammars in order to use this
                          code. The code is supplied with grammars for both C and
                          Modula-2.
                          
                          I tested the program with the following buggy C program:
                          
                          int main(int argc, char *argv[))
                          {
                              int i = 0;
                           
                              i += 1;
                           
                              return(0);
                          }}
                          
                          and received the following result:
                          
                          io <916> C test.c 
                          YYERROR: Parse error on ')': line 2 col 31
                          YYERROR: yytext=`)' symbol was (41)
                          Recovery: ( 0.01)[2][184] Inserted ']' and deleted ')' 
                          YYERROR: Parse error on '}', expecting `$': line 9 col 2
                          YYERROR: yytext=`}' symbol was (125)
                          Recovery: ( 0.00)[1][31] Inserted nothing and deleted '}' 
                          
                          which I believe is brilliant for no extra effort ;)
