Ticket #4 (new defect)

Opened 9 years ago

Empty tokens produce invalid lexer specifications

Reported by: bringert Owned by:
Priority: minor Component: Not back-end specific
Version: Keywords:


If there are empty tokens in the LBNF file, several of the back-ends produce invalid lexer specifications. For example:

F. C ::= "" ;
G. C ::= "foo" ;

At least the generated Alex and JLex code for this is invalid.

BNFC should consider empty tokens to be errors, or possibly silently convert them to empty tokens lists.
