       bison - GNU Project parser generator (yacc replacement)

       bison [OPTION]... FILE

       Bison  is  a  parser  generator	in the style of yacc(1).  It should be
       upwardly compatible with input files designed for yacc.

       Input files should follow the yacc convention of ending in .y.	Unlike
       yacc,  the generated files do not have fixed names, but instead use the
       prefix of the input file.  Moreover, if you need to put C++ code in the
       input  file,  you  can  end  his	 name by a C++-like extension (.ypp or
       .y++), then bison will follow your extension to name  the  output  file
       (.cpp  or  .c++).   For	instance,  a  grammar  description  file named
       parse.yxx  would	 produce  the  generated  parser  in  a	  file	 named,  instead	of  yacc's  or	 old  Bison  version's

       This description of the options that can be given to bison  is  adapted
       from  the  node	Invocation  in	the bison.texi manual, which should be
       taken as authoritative.

       Bison supports both traditional single-letter options and mnemonic long
       option  names.	Long  option names are indicated with -- instead of -.
       Abbreviations for option names are allowed as long as they are  unique.
       When  a	long option takes an argument, like --file-prefix, connect the
       option name and the argument with =.

       Generate a deterministic LR or generalized LR  (GLR)  parser  employing
       LALR(1), IELR(1), or canonical LR(1) parser tables.  IELR(1) and canon‐
       ical LR(1) support is experimental.

       Mandatory arguments to long options are	mandatory  for	short  options
       too.  The same is true for optional arguments.
