SPLinT is a \TeX\ package for building parsers and scanners in \TeX. Bison and Flex are used to create the tables that drive the automata programmed as \TeX\ macros (thus, after the parser/scanner has been completed it can be used in plain \TeX, without invoking any outside software). The documentation included with the package has a detailed description of the features of the produced parsers and scanners. To get started, run `make' to create a manual (which can be found as cweb/splint.pdf in the cweb/ directory) and take a look at the `examples' directory. Here is a short description of the various files included in the collection. Files: cweb/* - executables and documentation: bs.w - Bison Sourcer(er): table code core for bison fk.w - Flex Kit(ten): table code core for flex common.w - common code for table generators bo.w - parser for the bison grammar lo.w - lexer for the bison grammar np.w - scanner and parser for token names ssffo.w - lexer for state grabbing mkeparser.w - parser output `driver' mkscanner.w - lexer output `driver' splint.w - documentation tex/* - \TeX\ macros yy*.sty, yx*.sty, flex.sty - automata machinery trt1.sty - `\TeX\ runtime': temporary register definitions xarithm.sty - expandable arithmetic for parsing macros grabstates.sty - macros for state grabbing ?tokenset.sty - token typesetting definitions dcols.sty - multiple column output limbo.sty - limbo section macros frontmatter.sty - macros to typeset the cover page examples/* - various examples: count - an example of robust token counting macros. expression - a simple expression parser built with the package. ld - a typesetting parser for the \GNU\ linker, ld, with a very detailed implementation manual. symbols - a demonstration of the features of the bison parser included in the package. types - expandable arithmetic (e.g. addition and subtraction macros that can be used inside \edef), tree data structure; incomplete and slow, merely a proof of concept; only standard plain \TeX\ is used xxpression - an extended version of the `expression' example above, with a demonstration of symbolic name mechanism setup. scripts/* - helper (perl, for now) scripts to aid in pre- and post-processing of various files makefile.inc - common definitions makefile.loc - placeholder file for local make rules COPYING - license information INSTALL - cursory instalation notes README - this file TODO - plans for future development VERSION - the current version The most recent version of this software can be downloaded at math.tntech.edu/alex/splint.tar.bz2

splint – Write LALR(1) parsers in TeX using bison and flex
The bundle provides the means of building parsers and scanners in TeX. Bison and Flex are used to create the tables that drive the automata programmed as TeX macros.
