* 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
  be referred to from an `.mly` file). (Reported by François Thiré.)

* 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.)

* 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.)

* 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.

%on_error_reduce declarations now have implicit priority levels, so as to
tell Menhir what to do when two such declarations are applicable.

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.
72 73 74
(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.

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.

productions.) Of course, this means that the positions computed by the new
POTTIER Francois's avatar

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.

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

do not wish to have a dependency on MenhirLib).

159 160 161 162 163 164 165 166 167
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.

the copies were useful.

Modified the meaning of --canonical to allow default reductions to take

180 181 182
and should allow gaining more contextual information when a syntax
error is encountered. (It should also lead to a smaller automaton.)

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.

a list of erroneous sentences, and echoes just the sentences.

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.

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)

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 # 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.

which would cause an infinite loop.

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.

Code generation: more explicit qualifications with Pervasives so as
to avoid capture when the user redefines some of the built-in operators,
