* Moved the repository to
  [gitlab.inria.fr](https://gitlab.inria.fr/fpottier/menhir/).

* Introduced a new command line switch, `--cmly`, which causes Menhir to
  create a `.cmly` file, containing a description of the grammar and
  automaton. (Suggested by Frédéric Bour.)

* Introduced a new library, MenhirSdk, which allows reading a `.cmly` file.
  The purpose of this library is to allow external tools to take advantage
  of the work performed by Menhir's front-end. (Suggested by Frédéric Bour.)

* Introduced new syntax for attributes in a `.mly` file. Attributes are
  ignored by Menhir's back-ends, but are written to `.cmly` files, thus
  can be exploited by external tools via MenhirSdk. (Suggested by Frédéric Bour.)

23 24 25
* The definition of a `%public` nonterminal symbol can now be split into several
  parts within a single `.mly` file. (This used to be permitted only over
  multiple `.mly` files.) (Suggested by Frédéric Bour.)
26

* Improved the syntax error message that is displayed when a `.mly` file
  is incorrect: the previous and next token are shown.

30 31 32 33 34
* The type `stack` and the function `stack` in the incremental API are
  deprecated. The new functions `top` and `pop` can be used instead to
  inspect the parser's stack. The module `MenhirLib.General` is deprecated
  as well. Deprecated functionality will be removed in the future.

35 36
* Fixed a bug where the module name `Basics` was shadowed (that is, if the user's
  project happened to contain a toplevel module by this name, then it could not

37
  be referred to from a `.mly` file). (Reported by François Thiré.)

40 41 42 43 44

* Add `$MENHIR_STDLIB` as a way of controlling where Menhir looks for the file
  `standard.mly`. This environment variable overrides the installation-time
  default setting, and is itself overridden by the `--stdlib` command line
  switch. (Requested by Jonathan Protzenko.)

* `Makefile` fix: filter out `'\r'` in the output of `menhir --suggest-ocamlfind`,
  so that the `Makefile` works when Menhir is compiled as a Windows executable.
  (Suggested by Jonathan Protzenko.)

* Fix in `--only-preprocess-for-ocamlyacc` mode: avoid printing newline characters
  inside a `%type` declaration, as this is forbidden by `ocamlyacc`. (Reported by
  Kenji Maillard.)
* Fix in `--only-preprocess-for-ocamlyacc` mode: avoid variable capture caused by
  `ocamlyacc` internally translating `$i` to `_i`. (Reported by Kenji Maillard.)

## 2016/09/01
64 65 66 67 68

* New command line switch `--only-preprocess-for-ocamlyacc`, supposed to print the
  grammar in a form that `ocamlyacc` can accept. As of now, this feature is
  incomplete (in particular, support for Menhir's position keywords is missing),
  untested, and undocumented. It could be removed in the future.

  * The order of productions is now preserved.
      (It was not. This matters if there are reduce/reduce conflicts.)
  * `%parameter` directives are now printed. (They were not).
  * `%on_error_reduce` directives are now printed. (They were not.)

  to fail under (some versions of?) Windows where dynamic linking is not
  supported. (Reported by Andrew Appel.)

* `%on_error_reduce` declarations now have implicit priority levels, so as to
  tell Menhir what to do when two such declarations are applicable.
  Also, the well-formedness checks on `%type` and `%on_error_reduce` declarations
  have been reinforced.

92 93 94 95 96 97

* A small change in the generated code (both in the code and table back-ends) so
  as to avoid OCaml's warning 41. The warning would arise (when compiling a
  generated parser with OCaml 4.03) because Menhir's exception `Error` has the
  same name as the data constructor `Error` in OCaml's pervasive library.
  (Reported by Bernhard Schommer.)

* Anonymous rules now work also when used inside a parameterized rule.
  (This did not work until now.) When an anonymous rule is hoisted out
  of a parameterized rule, it may itself become parameterized. Menhir
  parameterizes it only over the parameters that it actually needs.

* In the Coq backend, split the largest definitions into smaller
  ones. This circumvents a limitation of vm_compute on 32 bit
  machines. This also enables us to perform sharing between
  definitions, so that the generated files are much smaller.

* In the code back-end, generate type annotations when extracting a semantic
  value out of the stack. When working with a semantic value of some function
  type, OCaml would incorrectly warn that this function does not use its
  argument. This warning should now be gone.

  stricter hygiene rules than previous versions.

  was given during `make all` but not during `make install`. Added a command

  could cause a generated parser to crash. Thanks to ygrek for reporting the
  bug.

* The code produced by version `XXXXXXXX` of `menhir --table` can now be linked only
143 144 145
  against a matching version of MenhirLib. If an incorrect version of MenhirLib
  is installed, the OCaml compiler should complain that
  `MenhirLib.StaticVersion.require_XXXXXXXX` is undefined.

  about the lexer. (See the manual.)

## 2015/11/04
153 154 155 156 157

* Modified the treatment of `%inline` so that the positions that are computed are
  the same, regardless of whether `%inline` is used. This property did not hold
  until now. It now does. Of course, this means that the positions computed by
  the new Menhir are not the same as those computed by older versions of Menhir.

159 160 161
* Fixed a bug in the treatment of `%inline` that would lead to an incorrect
  position being computed when the caller and callee had a variable by the
  same name.

POTTIER Francois committed
162

163 164 165 166 167 168 169 170
* Modified Menhir so as to compute the start and end positions in the exact same
  way as `ocamlyacc`. (There used to be a difference in the treatment of epsilon
  productions.) Of course, this means that the positions computed by the new
  Menhir are not the same as those computed by older versions of Menhir. Added
  the keyword `$symbolstartpos` so as to simulate `Parsing.symbol_start_pos()`
  in the `ocamlyacc` world. The keyword `$startpos` sometimes produces a position
  that is too far off to the left; `$symbolstartpos` produces a more accurate
  position.

171

172 173 174
* Incompatible change of the incremental API: instead of a unit argument, the
  entry points (which are named after the start symbols) now require an initial
  position, which typically should be `lexbuf.lex_curr_p`.

  opam/Windows. Thanks to Daniel Weil for patient explanations and testing.

## 2015/10/29
182 183 184 185 186 187

* MenhirLib is now installed in both binary and source forms.
  `menhir --suggest-menhirLib` reports where MenhirLib is installed.
  This can be used to retrieve a snapshot of MenhirLib in source form
  and include it in your project (if you wish to use `--table` mode, yet
  do not wish to have a dependency on MenhirLib).

## 2015/10/26
190 191 192 193

* Allow `--list-errors` to work on 32-bit machines (with low hard limits).
  This should fix a problem whereby the 2015/10/23 release could not
  bootstrap on a 32-bit machine.

## 2015/10/23
196 197 198 199 200 201 202 203 204

* New declaration `%on_error_reduce foo`, where `foo` is a nonterminal symbol.
  This modifies the automaton as follows. In every state where a production of
  the form `foo -> ...` is ready to be reduced, every error action is replaced
  with a reduction of this production. (If there is a conflict between several
  productions that could be reduced in this manner, nothing is done.) This does
  not affect the language that is accepted by the automaton, but delays the
  detection of an error: more reductions take place before the error is
  detected.
POTTIER Francois's avatar
POTTIER Francois committed
205

206 207 208 209
* Fixed a bug whereby Menhir would warn about a useless `%prec` declaration,
  even though it was useful. This would happen when the declaration was
  duplicated (by inlining or by macro-expansion) and some but not all of
  the copies were useful.
210

211
* Added `has_default_reduction` to the incremental API.
212

213 214 215 216
* Modified the meaning of `--canonical` to allow default reductions to take
  place. This implies no loss of precision in terms of lookahead sets,
  and should allow gaining more contextual information when a syntax
  error is encountered. (It should also lead to a smaller automaton.)
217

218 219 220 221 222 223 224 225 226 227 228 229 230 231
* A brand new set of tools to work on syntax errors.
* New command `--list-errors`, which produces a list of input sentences which
  are representative of all possible syntax errors. (Costly.)
* New command `--interpret-error`, which confirms that one particular input
  sentence ends in a syntax error, and prints the number of the state in
  which this error occurs.
* New command `--compile-errors`, which compiles a list of erroneous sentences
  (together with error messages) to OCaml code.
* New command `--compare-errors`, which compares two lists of erroneous sentences
  to check if they cover the same error states.
* New command `--update-errors`, which updates the auto-generated comments in
  a list of erroneous sentences.
* New command `--echo-errors`, which removes all comments and messages from
  a list of erroneous sentences, and echoes just the sentences.

234 235

* Additions to the incremental API.
236 237 238 239 240 241 242
  * A `supplier` is a function that produces tokens on demand.
  * `lexer_lexbuf_to_supplier` turns a lexer and a lexbuf into a supplier.
  * `loop` is a ready-made made main parsing loop.
  * `loop_handle` is a variant that lets the user do her own error handling.
  * `loop_handle_undo` is a variant that additionally allows undoing the last
    few "spurious" reductions.
  * `number` maps a state of the LR(1) automaton to its number.
243 244 245 246

* Incompatible change of the incremental API: renamed the type `'a result`
  to `'a checkpoint`. This is a better name anyway, and should help avoid
  confusion with the type `'a result` introduced in OCaml 4.03.
247

* Fixed a bug where inconsistent OCaml code was generated when `--table`
  and `--external-tokens` were used together. (Reported by Darin Morrison.)
256

257 258
* In `--infer` mode, leave the `.ml` file around (instead of removing it) if
  `ocamlc` fails, so we have a chance to understand what's wrong.

266 267 268 269 270

* Fixed the mysterious message that would appear when a nonterminal symbol
  begins with an uppercase letter and `--infer` is turned on. Clarified the
  documentation to indicate that a (non-start) nonterminal symbol can begin
  with an uppercase letter, but this is not recommended.

## 2015/08/27
273 274 275 276 277 278

* New option `--inspection` (added last January, documented only now). This
  generates an inspection API which allows inspecting the automaton's stack,
  among other things. This API can in principle be used to write custom code
  for error reporting, error recovery, etc. It is not yet mature and may
  change in the future.

  rewritten into variables of the form `_i` where `i` is an integer.
  Users are advised not to use variables of this form inside semantic
  actions.

337 338 339 340 341 342 343
* Menhir now reports an error if one of the start symbols produces
  either the empty language or the singleton language {epsilon}.

* Although some people out there actually define a start symbol that recognizes
  {epsilon} (and use it as a way of initializing or re-initializing some global
  state), this is considered bad style. Furthermore, by ruling out this case, we
  are able to simplify the table back-end a little bit.

* Added the flag `--canonical`, which causes Menhir to produce a canonical LR(1)
  automaton in the style of Knuth. This means that no merging of states takes
  place during the construction of the automaton, and that no default reductions
  are allowed.

* Fixed a bug whereby a `%nonassoc` declaration was not respected. This
  declaration requests that a shift/reduce conflict be reduced in favor of
  neither shifting nor reducing, that is, a syntax error must occur. However,
  due to an unforeseen interaction with the default reduction mechanism, this
  declaration was sometimes ignored and reduction would take place.

* The `Makefile` now tests whether Unix or Windows is used (the test is performed
  by evaluating `Sys.os_type` under `ocaml`) and changes a couple settings accordingly:
432 433
  * the executable file name is either `menhir` or `menhir.exe`
  * the object file suffix is either `.o` or `.obj`
434 435 436

* Added `--strict`, which causes many warnings about the grammar and about the
  automaton to be considered errors.
437

438 439 440 441 442 443
* The `#` annotations that are inserted in the generated `.ml` file now retain their
  full path. (That is, we no longer use `Filename.basename`.) This implies that
  the `#` annotations depend on how Menhir is invoked
  -- e.g., `menhir foo/bar.mly` and `cd foo && menhir bar.mly` will produce different
  results. Nevertheless, this seems reasonable and useful (e.g., in conjunction
  with `ocamlbuild` and a hierarchy of files). Thanks to Daniel Weil.

* Removed the lock in `ocamldep.wrapper`. It is the responsibility of the user
  to avoid interferences with other processes (or other instances of the script)
  that create and/or remove files.

* The (internal) computation of the automaton's invariant was broken and has
  been fixed. Surprisingly, this does not seem to affect the generated code,
  (which was correct,) so no observable bug is fixed. Hopefully no bug is
  introduced!

* The grammar description files (`.mly`) are now read in up front and stored in
  memory while they are parsed. This allows us to avoid the use of `pos_in` and
  `seek_in`, which do not work correctly when CRLF conversion is being performed.

* Fixed a bug that would cause an assertion failure in the generated parser
  in some situations where the input stream was incorrect and the grammar
  involved the error token. The fix might cause grammars that use the error
  token to behave differently (hopefully more accurately) as of now.
