flex & bison--New from O'Reilly
Unix Text Processing Tools
Sebastopol, CA--If you need to parse or process text data in Linux or Unix, you'll want a guide
that explains how to use flex and bison to solve your problems quickly. "flex & bison" (O'Reilly,
US $29.99) by John Levine is the long-awaited sequel to the classic O'Reilly book, "lex & yacc." In
the nearly two decades since the original book was published, the flex and bison utilities have
proven to be more reliable and more powerful than the original Unix tools.
"flex & bison" covers the same core functionality vital to Linux and Unix program development,
along with several important new topics. You'll find revised tutorials for novices and references
for advanced users, as well as an explanation of each utility's basic usage and simple, standalone
applications you can create with them. With "flex & bison," you'll discover the wide range of uses
these flexible tools offer.
- Address syntax crunching that regular expressions tools can't handle
- Build compilers and interpreters, and handle a wide range of text processing functions
- Interpret code, configuration files, or any other structured format
- Learn key programming techniques, including abstract syntax trees and symbol tables
- Implement a full SQL grammar-with complete sample code
- Use new features such as pure (reentrant) lexers and parsers, powerful GLR parsers, and
interfaces to C++
