## 2017/12/22

* Add a flag `--unused-precedence-levels` to suppress all warnings about
  useless `%left`, `%right`, `%nonassoc` and `%prec` declarations.
  (Suggested by Zachary Tatlock.)

## 2017/12/06

* 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 committed
13 14 15
  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.)

## 2017/11/12

* Documentation: clarify the fact that `%type` declarations should carry types
  whose meaning does not depend on the headers `%{ ... %}`.

22 23 24 25 26 27
## 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.)

## 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.
  (Suggested by Jonathan Protzenko.)

## 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.

43 44 45 46 47
## 2017/06/07

* Removed an undeclared dependency of MenhirSdk on Unix. (Reported and fixed
  by Frédéric Bour.)

## 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.)

* Changed Menhir's license from QPL to GPLv2.
  MenhirLib remains under LGPLv2, with a linking exception.

POTTIER Francois committed
61 62 63 64 65 66 67 68 69 70 71 72 73 74 75
* 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.)

76 77 78
* 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.)
79

POTTIER Francois committed
80 81 82 83 84 85 86 87 88
* 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.)
89

90 91 92 93 94
* 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.

95 96 97 98
* 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`.
99

100 101 102 103 104
* 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.

POTTIER Francois committed
105 106 107 108 109
* 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.)

POTTIER Francois committed
110 111 112
* Improved the syntax error message that is displayed when a `.mly` file
  is incorrect: the previous and next token are shown.

113 114
* 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
POTTIER Francois committed
115
  be referred to from a `.mly` file). (Reported by François Thiré.)
116

117
## 2017/01/01
118 119 120 121 122

* 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.)
POTTIER Francois committed
123

124 125 126
* `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.)
127

128
## 2016/12/01
129 130 131

* Updated the Coq back-end for compatibility with Coq 8.6.
  (Jacques-Henri Jourdan.)
POTTIER Francois committed
132

133
## 2016/11/15
134 135 136 137 138 139

* 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.)
140

141
## 2016/09/01
142 143 144 145 146

* 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.
POTTIER Francois committed
147

148
## 2016/08/26
149 150

* Fixes in the output of `--only-preprocess`:
151 152 153 154
  * 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.)
155

156
## 2016/08/25
157 158 159 160

* `Makefile` fix, undoing a change made on 2016/03/03, which caused installation
  to fail under (some versions of?) Windows where dynamic linking is not
  supported. (Reported by Andrew Appel.)
161

162
## 2016/08/05
163 164 165 166 167

* `%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.
POTTIER Francois committed
168

169
## 2016/06/23
170 171 172 173 174 175

* 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.)
176

177
## 2016/05/18
178 179 180 181 182

* 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.
183

184
## 2016/05/04
185 186 187 188 189

* 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.
Jacques-Henri Jourdan committed
190

191
## 2016/04/10
192 193 194

* When printing a grammar (which is done by the `--only-preprocess` options),
  remove the leading bar `|`, for compatibility with `yacc` and `bison`.
POTTIER Francois committed
195

196
## 2016/03/11
197 198 199 200 201

* 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.
202

203
## 2016/03/03
204 205 206

* Makefile changes, so as to support `ocamlbuild` 4.03, which seems to have
  stricter hygiene rules than previous versions.
POTTIER Francois committed
207

208
## 2015/12/30
209 210 211 212

* Prevented an incorrect installation that would take place if `USE_OCAMLFIND`
  was given during `make all` but not during `make install`. Added a command
  line directive `--suggest-ocamlfind`.
213

214
## 2015/11/11
215 216 217 218

* Fixed a severe bug in Menhir 20151110 which (when using the code back-end)
  could cause a generated parser to crash. Thanks to ygrek for reporting the
  bug.
POTTIER Francois committed
219

220
* The code produced by version `XXXXXXXX` of `menhir --table` can now be linked only
221 222 223
  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.
224

225
## 2015/11/10
226 227 228

* Optimized the computation of `$symbolstartpos`, based on a couple of assumptions
  about the lexer. (See the manual.)
POTTIER Francois committed
229

230
## 2015/11/04
231 232 233 234 235

* 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.
POTTIER Francois committed
236

237 238 239
* 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
240

241 242 243 244 245 246 247 248
* 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.
POTTIER Francois committed
249

250 251 252
* 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`.
253

254
## 2015/11/03
255 256 257

* Fix-fix-and-re-fix the `Makefile` in an attempt to allow installation under
  opam/Windows. Thanks to Daniel Weil for patient explanations and testing.
258

259
## 2015/10/29
260 261 262 263 264 265

* 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).
266

267
## 2015/10/26
268 269 270 271

* 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.
272

273
## 2015/10/23
274 275 276 277 278 279 280 281 282

* 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 committed
283

284 285 286 287
* 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.
288

289
* Added `has_default_reduction` to the incremental API.
290

291 292 293 294
* 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.)
295

296 297 298 299 300 301 302 303 304 305 306 307 308 309
* 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.

311
## 2015/10/16
312 313

* Additions to the incremental API.
314 315 316 317 318 319 320
  * 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.
321 322 323 324

* 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.
325

326
## 2015/10/12
327 328

* Avoid using `$(shell pwd)` in `Makefile`, for better Windows compatibility.
329

330
## 2015/10/05
331 332 333

* Fixed a bug where inconsistent OCaml code was generated when `--table`
  and `--external-tokens` were used together. (Reported by Darin Morrison.)
334

335 336
* 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.
337

338
## 2015/09/21
339 340 341

* Re-established some error messages concerning the mis-use of `$i` which
  had disappeared on 2015/06/29.
POTTIER Francois committed
342

343
## 2015/09/11
344 345 346 347 348

* 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.
349

350
## 2015/08/27
351 352 353 354 355 356

* 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.
357

358
## 2015/07/20
359 360

* Added the command line options `--unused-token <symbol>` and `--unused-tokens`.
361

362
## 2015/06/29
363 364 365 366 367

* Changed the treatment of the positional keywords `$i`. They are now
  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.
Yann Régis-Gianas committed
368

369
## 2015/02/11
370 371 372 373 374

* Added support for anonymous rules. This allows writing, e.g.,
  `list(e = expression SEMI { e })`
  whereas previously one should have written
  `list(terminated(e, SEMI))`.
375

376
## 2015/02/09
377 378

* Moved all of the demos to `ocamlbuild` (instead of `make`).
379

380
## 2015/01/18
381 382 383

* Incompatible change of the incremental API.
  The incremental API now exposes shift events too.
384

385
## 2015/01/16
386 387 388 389

* Fixed a couple bugs in `Makefile` and `src/Makefile` which would cause
  compilation and installation to fail with `TARGET=byte`. (Reported
  by Jérémie Courrèges-Anglas and Daniel Dickman.)
390

391
## 2015/01/01
392 393 394

* Incompatible change of the incremental API.
  The entry point `main_incremental` is now named `Incremental.main`.
395

396
## 2014/12/29
397 398

* Incompatible change of the incremental API.
399 400 401 402 403
  * The API now exposes reduction events.
  * The type `'a result` is now private.
  * The type `env` is no longer parameterized.
  * `handle` is renamed to `resume`.
  * `offer` and `resume` now expect a result, not an environment.
404

405
## 2014/12/22
406 407

* Documented the Coq back-end (designed and implemented by Jacques-Henri Jourdan).
408

409
## 2014/12/15
410 411

* New incremental API (in `--table` mode only), inspired by Frédéric Bour.
POTTIER Francois committed
412

413
## 2014/12/11
414

415 416 417 418 419 420 421
* 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.
422

423
## 2014/12/12
424 425

* A speed improvement in the code back-end.
POTTIER Francois committed
426

427
## 2014/12/08
428 429

* Menhir now requires OCaml 4.02 (instead of 3.09).
430

431
## 2014/12/02
432 433 434

* Removed support for the `$previouserror` keyword.
* Removed support for `--error-recovery` mode.
435

436
## 2014/02/18
437

438 439 440 441
* In the Coq backend, use `'` instead of `_` as separator in identifiers.
  Also, correct a serious bug that was inadvertently introduced on
  2013/03/01 (r319).

442
## 2014/02/14
443 444 445

* Lexer fix so as to support an open variant type `[> ...]` within
  a `%type<...>` declaration.
446

447
## 2013/12/16
448 449 450 451 452

* Updated the `Makefile` so that `install` no longer depends on `all`.

* Updated the demos so that the lexer does not invoke `exit 0`
  when encoutering `eof`. (This should be more intuitive.)
fpottier committed
453

454
## 2013/09/11
455 456 457

* Fixed a newline conversion problem that would prevent Menhir from
  building on Windows when using ocaml 4.01.
458

459
## 2013/03/02
460 461 462

* Switched to ocamlbuild. Many thanks to Daniel Weil for offering
  very useful guidance.
fpottier committed
463

464
## 2013/01/16
465 466 467

* `menhir --depend` was broken since someone added new whitespace in the output
  of `ocamldep`. Fixed.
468

469
## 2012/12/19
470 471 472 473

* Fixed a compilation problem that would arise when a file produced
  by Menhir on a 64-bit platform was compiled by ocaml on a 32-bit
  platform.
474

475
## 2012/08/25
476 477 478 479

* Performance improvements in the computation of various information
  about the automaton (module `Invariant`). The improvements will be
  noticeable only for very large automata.
480

481
## 2012/06/07
482 483 484

* The option `--log-grammar 3` (and above) now causes the `FOLLOW` sets for
  terminal symbols to be computed and displayed.
485

486
## 2012/05/25
487 488 489 490 491

* 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.
500

501
## 2012/01/09
502 503 504

* Changes in the (undocumented) Coq back-end so as to match the ESOP 2012
  paper.
505

506
## 2011/10/19
507 508 509

* 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:
510 511
  * the executable file name is either `menhir` or `menhir.exe`
  * the object file suffix is either `.o` or `.obj`
512 513 514

* Added `--strict`, which causes many warnings about the grammar and about the
  automaton to be considered errors.
515

516 517 518 519 520 521
* 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.
522

523
## 2011/10/06
524 525

* With the `-lg 1` switch, Menhir now indicates whether the grammar is SLR(1).
526

527
## 2011/05/24
528 529 530 531

* 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.
532

533
## 2011/04/28
534 535 536 537 538

* 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!
539

540
## 2011/04/07
541 542 543 544

* 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.
545

546
## 2011/04/05
547 548 549

* Fixed a bug in the type inference module (for parameterized non-terminals)
  which would cause an infinite loop.
550

551
## 2011/01/24
552 553 554 555 556

* 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.
557

558
## 2009/06/18
559 560 561

* `Makefile` changes: build and install only the bytecode version of MenhirLib
  when `TARGET=byte` is set.
562

563
## 2009/02/06
564 565 566

* Fixed `ocamldep.wrapper` to avoid quoting the name of the `ocaml` command.
  This is hoped to fix a compilation problem under MinGW.
567

568
## 2009/02/04
569 570 571

* A `Makefile` fix to avoid a problem under Windows/Cygwin.
* Renamed the `ocaml-check-version` script so as to avoid a warning.
572

573
## 2008/09/05
574 575

* Ocaml summer project: added `--interpret`, `--table`, and `--suggest-*`.
576

577
## 2008/08/06
578 579 580

* Fixed a problem that would cause the code inliner to abort when a semantic
  value and a non-terminal symbol happened to have the same name.
581

582
* Removed code sharing.
583

584
## 2008/06/20
585 586

* Removed an incorrect assertion that caused failures (`lr1.ml`, line 134).
587

588
## 2007/12/05
589 590 591

* Disabled code sharing by default, as it is currently broken. (See Yann's
  message; assertion failure at runtime.)
592

593
## 2007/12/01
594 595 596

* Added an optimization to share code among states that have identical
  outgoing transition tables.
597

598
## 2007/08/30
599 600 601

* Small `Makefile` change: create an executable file for `check-ocaml-version` in
  order to work around the absence of dynamic loading on some platforms.
602

603
## 2007/05/20
604 605 606 607

* Made a fundamental change in the construction of the LR(1) automaton
  in order to eliminate a bug that could lead to spurious conflicts --
  thanks to Ketti for submitting a bug report.
608

609
## 2007/05/18
610 611 612

* Added `--follow-construction` to help understand the construction of the
  LR(1) automaton (very verbose).
613

614
## 2007/05/11
615 616 617 618 619

* 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`.
620

621
## 2007/03/22
622 623 624

* `Makefile` improvements (check for `PREFIX`; bootstrap in bytecode now
  also available). Slight changes to `OMakefile.shared`.
625

626
## 2007/02/15
627 628

* Portability fix in `Makefile` and `Makefile.shared` (avoided `which`).
629

630
## 2006/12/15
631 632

* Portability fix in `Makefile.shared` (replaced `&>` with `2>&1 >`).
633

634
## 2006/06/23
635 636 637 638

* Made a slight restriction to Pager's criterion so as to never introduce
  fake conflict tokens (see `Lr0.compatible`). This might help make conflict
  explanations more accurate in the future.
639

640
## 2006/06/16
641 642

* Fixed bug that would cause positions to become invalid after inlining.
643

644
## 2006/06/15
645 646 647 648

* Fixed `--depend` to be more lenient when analyzing `ocamldep`'s output.
* Added `--raw-depend` which transmits `ocamldep`'s output unchanged (for
  use in conjunction with `omake`).
649

650
## 2006/06/12
651 652 653 654 655 656 657 658 659 660

* 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.
661

662
## 2006/05/05
663 664 665

* Fixed problem that caused some end-of-stream conflicts not to be reported.
* Fixed Pager's compatibility criterion to avoid creating end-of-stream conflicts.
666

667
## 2006/04/21
668 669 670 671

* Fixed problem that allowed generating incorrect but apparently well-typed
  Objective Caml code when a semantic action was ill-typed and `--infer` was
  omitted.
672

673
## 2006/03/29
674 675

* Improved conflict reports by factoring out maximal common derivation contexts.
676

677
## 2006/03/28
678 679

* Fixed bug that could arise when explaining a conflict in a non-LALR(1) grammar.
680

681
## 2006/03/27
682

683 684
* Changed count of reduce/reduce conflicts to allow a comparison
  with `ocamlyacc`'s diagnostics.
685
* When refusing to resolve a conflict, report all diagnostics before dying.
686

687
## 2006/03/18
688 689 690 691

* Added display of `FOLLOW` sets when using `--log-grammar 2`.
* Added `--graph` option.
* Fixed behavior of `--depend` option.
692

693
## 2006/01/06
694 695

* Removed reversed lists from the standard library.
