(* The purpose of this algorithm is to find, for each pair of a state [s]
   and a terminal symbol [z] such that looking at [z] in state [s] causes
   an error, a minimal path (starting in some initial state) that actually
   triggers this error. *)

(* This is potentially useful for grammar designers who wish to better
   understand the properties of their grammar, or who wish to produce a
   list of all possible syntax errors (or, at least, one syntax error in
   each automaton state where an error may occur). *)

(* The problem seems rather tricky. One might think that it suffices to
   compute shortest paths in the automaton, and to use [Analysis.minimal] to
   replace each non-terminal symbol in a path with a minimal word that this
   symbol generates. One can indeed do so, but this yields only a lower bound
   on the actual shortest path to the error at [s, z]. Indeed, two
   difficulties arise:

   - Some states have a default reduction. Thus, they will not trigger
     an error, even though they should. The error is triggered in some
     other state, after reduction takes place.

   - If the grammar has conflicts, conflict resolution removes some
     (shift or reduce) actions, hence may suppress the shortest path. *)

(* We explicitly choose to ignore the [error] token. Thus, we disregard any
   reductions or transitions that take place when the lookahead symbol is
   [error]. As a result, any state whose incoming symbol is [error] is found
   unreachable. It would be too complicated to have to create a first error in
   order to be able to take certain transitions or drop certain parts of the
   input. *)

(* We never work with the terminal symbol [#] either. This symbol never
   appears in the maps returned by [Lr1.transitions] and [Lr1.reductions].
   Thus, in principle, we work with ``real'' terminal symbols only. However,
   we encode [any] as [#] -- see below. *)

(* The module [T] maintains a set of known facts. *)

(* Three aspects of a fact are of particular interest:
   - its position [position], given by [fact.position];
   - its first symbol [a], given by [W.first fact.word fact.lookahead];
   - its lookahead assumption [z], given by [fact.lookahead].

   For every triple of [position], [a], and [z], we store at most one fact,
   (whose word has minimal length). Indeed, we are not interested in keeping
   track of several words that produce the same effect. Only the shortest such
   word is of interest.
   
   Thus, the total number of facts accumulated by the algorithm is at most
   [T.n^2], where [T] is the total size of the tries that we have constructed,
   and [n] is the number of terminal symbols. (This number can be quite large.
   [T] can be in the tens of thousands, and [n] can be over one hundred. These
   figures lead to a theoretical upper bound of 100M. In practice, for T=25K
   and n=108, we observe that the algorithm gathers about 7M facts.) *)

     where [current] is a state. (Note that [position] determines [current], but
     the converse is not true: a position contains more information besides the
     current state.)

     To address these needs, we use a two-level table. The first level is a
     matrix indexed by [current] and [z]. At the second level, we find sets of
     facts, where two facts are considered equal if they have the same triple of

           However, allowing [z] to be [any] in [E.query], and taking 
           advantage of this to increase performance, seems difficult. *)
