* The command line switch `--dump` writes a description of the automaton to
  the file `.automaton` *before* conflicts have been resolved and extra
  reductions have been introduced. This behavior is unchanged. The manner in
  which end-of-stream conflicts are displayed in this file has been improved.

* In the files `.automaton` and `.automaton.resolved`, the known suffix of the
  stack in each state is now explicitly shown. (Although it can be deduced
  from the LR(1) items, showing it helps.)

* Document the problem caused by placing a module alias declaration
  in an `.mly` file. (See *Questions and Answers* in the manual.)

* Turn off a costly internal well-formedness assertion.
  This allows a 30% speedup in the construction of large automata
  and in the conflict explanation process. (Reported by Joe.)

## 2020/06/24

* Fix a bug introduced on 2020/02/11 that causes all reduce/reduce conflicts
  to be mistakenly declared unexplainable, provided the grammar has at least
  62 terminal symbols. (Reported by Joe.)

## 2020/06/19

* Fix the suggestions printed by `--suggest-link-flags-byte` and
  `--suggest-link-flags-opt` so as to suggest `menhirLib.cma` or
  `menhirLib.cmxa` instead of `menhirLib.cmo` or `menhirLib.cmx`. This change
  should have been made on 2020/01/21, when we switched to automated
  installation via `opam` and `dune`.

## 2020/06/12

* When a semantic value is unused in a semantic action, the warning (or error)
  should now be correctly reported in the `.mly` file, not in a generated
  `.ml` file. (This works only when `--infer` is enabled, because we are lazy.
  If you use `dune`, this works out of the box.)

## 2020/05/25

* Fix a problem that could arise when an open polymorphic variant, such as
  ```[> `A ]```, was used in a `%type` or `%start` declaration. A type that
  was too general could possibly be inferred. This could in turn lead to an
  incorrect compilation of pattern matching and to a segmentation fault.
  (Problem reported by Joe.)
54 55 56

* Fix the static check that is performed prior to expanding the parameterized
  nonterminal symbols. The previous check was incorrect: it would sometimes
POTTIER Francois's avatar

  accept a grammar whose expansion would diverge. (Fix by Yann Régis-Gianas.)

* Re-implement Menhir's default algorithm for constructing LR(1) automata,
  namely Pager's algorithm. This closes issue #21 (reported by Andrej Bauer),
  a bug that would sometimes cause unexplainable conflicts to appear, because
  states were merged too aggressively. This also removes an unreported bug
  that would cause the automaton to have too many states, because states were
  *not* merged aggressively enough. In summary, the old and new construction
  algorithms differ: in many cases, the resulting automaton is unchanged, but
  in some cases, the automaton produced by the new algorithm may have slightly
  more or slightly fewer states.

* Re-implement Menhir's algorithm for constructing automata in `--no-pager`
  mode. In this (undocumented) mode, Menhir does not merge any states, but
  allows itself to redirect a transition from a state `s` to a *larger* state
  `s'`. This method yields an automaton whose states form a subset of the
  states of the canonical LR(1) automaton. It usually has significantly fewer
  states than the canonical automaton, and significantly more states than the
  automaton produced by Pager's algorithm. The new construction method removes
  an unreported bug that would cause the automaton to have too many states.
  The automaton produced by the new algorithm will usually have significantly
  fewer states than the automaton produced by the previous algorithm.

* Re-implement Menhir's algorithms for constructing automata in `--lalr` and
  `--canonical` modes. The previous algorithms were correct, as far as we
  know, so the output of the new algorithms is the same, up to a possible
  renumbering of the states. The new algorithms are slightly faster.

87 88
* Increase the maximum length of a production, which used to be 127,
  up to 1023. Display a polite error message if this length is exceeded.

  information to be written to the file `<filename>`.

* A version of the library `fix` is now vendored (included) inside Menhir.
95 96 97
  This should have no impact for end users, but implies that `dune` 2.2.0
  or later is required.

98 99 100 101 102 103 104
## 2020/01/21

* There used to be a distinction between two slightly different ways of
  installing Menhir, namely with and without `ocamlfind`. This distinction
  disappears. The command line switch `--suggest-ocamlfind` is deprecated
  and causes Menhir to print `false`.

105 106 107 108 109
* Menhir is now built and installed by `dune`. This should make life easier
  for Menhir's developers: in particular, `make test` and `make speed` can be
  run straight away and do not requiring installing Menhir first. This should
  also make compilation much faster on multi-core machines. (Contributed by
  Nicolás Ojeda Bär, to whom many thanks are due.)

## 2019/09/24

* Build Menhir's standard library into the Menhir executable instead of
  storing it in a separate file `standard.mly`. This removes the need to
POTTIER Francois's avatar
POTTIER Francois committed
115 116 117 118 119 120 121
  hardcode the path to this file into the Menhir executable. This also removes
  the need for the command line switch `--stdlib`, which remains supported but
  is now ignored, and for the environment variable `$MENHIR_STDLIB`, which is
  now ignored. A positive side effect of this change is that the full path of
  the file `standard.mly` no longer appears in generated parsers; this removes
  a source of spurious variation. (Suggested and implemented by Nicolás Ojeda
  Bär.)

## 2019/06/20

* When compiled with OCaml 4.02.3, Menhir could produce OCaml code
  containing invalid string literals. This was due to a problem in
  `String.escaped`. Fixed. (Reported by ELLIOTCABLE.)

131 132 133 134
* Relax the syntax of point-free actions to allow `< >` (with arbitrary
  whitespace inside the angle brackets) instead of just `<>`.
  (Suggested by Lélio Brun.)

135 136 137 138
* When a cycle of `%inline` nonterminal symbols is encountered,
  the error message now shows the entire cycle,
  as opposed to just one symbol that participates in the cycle.

139 140 141 142 143
* Fix the treatment of the `error` token when printing the grammar for
  `ocamlyacc`. Its semantic value must not be referred to; a unit value
  must be used instead. The switch `--only-preprocess-for-ocamlyacc`
  remains undocumented. (Reported by kris.)

* In `.mly` files, a new syntax for rules has been introduced, which is
  slightly more pleasant than the old syntax. (A rule is the definition of a
  nonterminal symbol.) The old syntax remains available; the user chooses
  between the two syntaxes on a per-rule basis. The new syntax is fully
  documented in the manual;

  [a brief summary of the differences](doc/new-rule-syntax-summary.md)

  with respect to the old syntax is also available.
  **The new syntax is considered experimental**
  and is subject to change in the near future.

* In the Coq back-end, avoid pattern-matching at type `int31`,
  which will disappear in future versions of Coq.
  Instead, convert `int31` to `Z`, and perform pattern matching in `Z`.
  (Reported by Vincent Laporte, implemented by Jacques-Henri Jourdan.)
176

177 178 179 180 181
* Implement a more economical renaming scheme for OCaml variables
  during the elimination of `%inline` symbols. This leads to slightly
  more readable code (more reasonable variables names, fewer `let`
  bindings).

182 183 184
* Another attempt at removing all trailing spaces in auto-generated
  `.messages` files. (I hope I got it right, this time.)

185 186 187 188 189 190 191 192 193 194
## 2018/10/26

* A new syntactic sugar facility, "token aliases", has been added.
  The declaration of a terminal symbol may also declare an alias,
  which takes the form of a name between double quotes, as in
  `%token PLUS "+"`.
  Thereafter, `"+"` may be used freely in place of `PLUS` throughout
  the grammar. This makes it slightly easier to read grammars.
  (Contributed by Perry E. Metzger.)

195 196 197 198 199 200 201
* Until today, the semicolon character `;` was insignificant: it was
  considered as whitespace by Menhir. It is now accepted only in a
  few specific places, namely: after a declaration; after a rule;
  after a producer. If Menhir suddenly complains about a semicolon,
  just remove it. This change is being made in preparation for
  further syntactic changes.

202
* New flag `--no-dollars`, which disallows the use of `$i` in semantic actions.
203
  The default behavior remains to allow the use of `$i`.
204 205 206 207 208

* When generating OCaml code, include all record fields in record patterns,
  even when bound to a wildcard pattern. Thus, avoid triggering OCaml's
  warning 9.

* Standard library: add `rev`, `flatten`, `append`.
212 213
  Add a link from the manual to `standard.mly` in the repository.

214 215
* Update the manual to explain how to use `dune` and `menhir` together.

216
* Install `.cmxs` files for menhirLib and menhirSdk.
217

218 219 220 221
* Remove all references to `Pervasives` in the generated OCaml code.
  These references were infrequent anyway,
  and `Pervasives` is about to be deprecated in OCaml 4.08, it seems.

222 223
* In `--interpret` mode, print `Ready!` once ready to accept input.

224 225 226 227 228 229
* At verbosity level `-lg 2`, for each nonterminal symbol `N`, display
  a sentence (composed of terminal symbols) of minimal length generated
  by `N`.

* When writing a `.cmly` file, open it in binary mode. This should
  eliminate the failure that was observed under Windows:
230 231 232 233 234
  `output_value: not a binary channel`. (Reported by Bryan Phelps.
  A fix was present in the `mingw` patches for Menhir.)

* Change the logic used in the root `Makefile` to deal with Unix and Windows
  in a uniform way. (Also inspired by the `mingw` patches for Menhir.)
235

236 237 238
* Coq back-end: add a few newlines in the generated file for readability.
  (Suggested by Bernhard Schommer.)

239 240 241
* Remove the trailing space at the end of every sentence in
  auto-generated `.messages` files. (Suggested by Xavier Leroy.)

242 243 244 245 246 247 248 249 250 251
## 2018/09/05

* When `--explain` is enabled, always create a fresh `.conflicts` file
  (wiping out any pre-existing file), even if there are in fact no conflicts.
  This should avoid confusion with outdated `.conflicts` files.

* Fix several bugs in the treatment of `--strict`. No `.conflicts` file
  was created when `--strict` and `--explain` were both enabled. Also,
  some warnings were not properly turned into errors by `--strict`.

252 253 254 255
## 2018/07/04

* Update the `man` page, which was woefully out of date.

256 257 258 259 260 261 262 263
## 2018/07/03

* New location keywords.
  `$loc` is sugar for the pair `($startpos, $endpos)`.
  `$loc(x)` is sugar for the pair `($startpos(x), $endpos(x))`.
  `$sloc` is sugar for the pair `($symbolstartpos, $endpos)`.
  (Contributed by Nicolás Ojeda Bär.)

264 265 266 267 268 269 270 271
## 2018/06/08

* Add two new parameterized nonterminal symbols, `endrule(X)` and `midrule(X)`,
  to the standard library. These symbols have been available since 2015/02/11
  under the names `anonymous(X)` and `embedded(X)`, but were not yet documented.
  `endrule(X)` and `midrule(X)` are now documented,
  while `anonymous(X)` and `embedded(X)` remain present but are deprecated.

272 273 274 275 276 277 278 279 280 281 282 283 284 285
## 2018/05/30

* In `--coq` mode, Menhir now produces references to `MenhirLib.Grammar`
  instead of just `Grammar`, and similarly for all modules in Menhir's support
  library.

* New command line option `--coq-lib-no-path` to suppress the above behavior
  and retain the previous (now-deprecated) behavior, that is, produce
  unqualified references the modules in Menhir's support library.

* New command line option `--coq-lib-path <path>` to indicate under what name
  (or path) the support library has been installed. Its default value is
  `MenhirLib`.

POTTIER Francois's avatar

286 287 288
## 2018/05/23

* New commands `--infer-write-query`, `--infer-read-reply`, and
289 290 291 292 293 294 295 296 297 298 299 300
  `--infer-protocol-supported`. These commands remove the need for Menhir to
  invoke `ocamlc` and `ocamldep` behind the scenes, and make it easier to
  write correct build rules for Menhir projects. The command line options
  `--infer`, `--raw-depend` and `--depend` remain supported, but are no longer
  preferred. (Suggested by Fabrice Le Fessant.)

* Remove the warning that was issued when `%inline` was used but `--infer` was
  turned off. Most people should use a build system that knows how to enable
  OCaml type inference, such as `ocamlbuild` or `dune`.

* New HTML rendering of the manual, available both online and as part of
  Menhir's installation. (Implemented by Gabriel Scherer.)

  useless `%left`, `%right`, `%nonassoc` and `%prec` declarations.

* Fix the termination test that takes place before parameterized symbols are
  expanded away. The previous test was both unsound (it would accept grammars
POTTIER Francois's avatar

312 313 314
  whose expansion did not terminate) and incomplete (it would reject grammars
  whose expansion did terminate). The new test is believed to be sound and
  complete. (Thanks to Martin Bodin for prompting us to look into this issue.)

  whose meaning does not depend on the headers `%{ ... %}`.

321 322 323 324 325 326
## 2017/10/13

* Remove the OCaml version check at installation time, for greater simplicity,
  and because for some reason it did not work properly under Cygwin.
  (Reported by Andrew Appel.)

327 328 329 330 331 332 333
## 2017/09/26

* `Makefile` fix: when determining whether the suffix `.exe` should be used,
  one should test whether the OS is Windows,
  not whether the compiler is MSVC.

## 2017/07/12

* Include the LaTeX sources of the manual in the official `.tar.gz` archive.
  This should allow the manual to be included as part of the Debian package.

* Mention [Obelisk](https://github.com/Lelio-Brun/Obelisk),
  a pretty-printer for `.mly` files, in the manual.

342 343 344 345 346

## 2017/05/09

* Menhir now always places OCaml line number directives in the generated `.ml`
  file. (Until now, this was done only when `--infer` was off.) Thus, if a
  semantic action contains an `assert` statement, the file name and line
  number information carried by the `Assert_failure` exception should now be
  correct. (Reported by Helmut Brandl.)

* 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.)

375 376 377
* 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.)

* New functions in the incremental API:
  `shifts`, `acceptable`, `current_state_number`.

* New functions in the incremental API and inspection API:
  `top`, `pop`, `pop_many`, `get`, `equal`,
  `force_reduction`, `feed`, `input_needed`,
  `state_has_default_reduction`,
  `production_index`, `find_production`.
  (Suggested by Frédéric Bour.)
388

389 390 391 392 393
* New module `MenhirLib.ErrorReports`. This module is supposed to offer
  auxiliary functions that help produce good syntax error messages.
  This module does not yet contain much functionality and is expected
  to evolve in the future.

394 395 396 397
* Incompatible change in the incremental API: the type `env` becomes `'a env`.

* Incompatible change in the incremental API: the function
  `has_default_reduction` is renamed `env_has_default_reduction`.
398

399 400 401 402 403
* 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.

404 405 406 407 408
* Incompatible change in the incremental API: the type of the function
  `print_stack` in the result signature of the functor
  `MenhirLib.Printers.Make` changes to `'a env -> unit`.
   (Anyway, as of now, `MenhirLib.Printers` remains undocumented.)

  project happened to contain a toplevel module by this name, then it could not

* 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.)

  incomplete (in particular, support for Menhir's position keywords is missing),
  untested, and undocumented. It could be removed in the future.

* 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

  same name as the data constructor `Error` in OCaml's pervasive library.

* 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

* 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.

* 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.

583 584 585 586
* Fixed a bug whereby Menhir would warn about a useless `%prec` declaration,

  the copies were useful.
587

* Added `has_default_reduction` to the incremental API.
589

590 591 592 593
* Modified the meaning of `--canonical` to allow default reductions to take

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

* 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.

620 621 622 623

* Fixed `ocamldep.wrapper` to avoid quoting the name of the `ocaml` command.
  This is hoped to fix a compilation problem under MinGW.

* Code generation: more explicit qualifications with `Pervasives` so as
  to avoid capture when the user redefines some of the built-in operators,
  such as `(+)`.
* Added a new demo (`calc-param`) that shows how to use `%parameter`.

  fake conflict tokens (see `Lr0.compatible`). This might help make conflict
  explanations more accurate in the future.

* Fixed bug that would cause `--only-preprocess` to print `%token` declarations
  also for pseudo-tokens.
* Fixed bug that caused some precedence declarations to be incorrectly
  reported as useless.
* Improved things so that useless pseudo-tokens now also cause warnings.
* Fixed bug that would cause `%type` directives for terminal symbols to
  be incorrectly accepted.
* Fixed bug that would occur when a semantic action containing `$i` keywords
  was inlined.
