This isn’t a big issue, but I was wondering if it was possible to give a token more than one name?
// C++esque grammar ... %token dereference * %token multiply * ... #dereferenceExpression: ::dereference:: expression() // Demo-only -- ignore left recursion #multiplyExpression: expression() ::multiply:: expression()
I tried something similar, and the .pp file is legal, but only the top token name would never be used. It would be nice to be able to do this for a couple reasons:
- It’s easier to read.
- It slightly reduces work required to change one of the tokens. For example, if you wanted to change
@, you don’t need to change
