Invoking Bison ************** The usual way to invoke Bison is as follows: bison INFILE Here INFILE is the grammar file name, which usually ends in `.y'. The parser file's name is made by replacing the `.y' with `.tab.c'. Thus, the `bison foo.y' filename yields `foo.tab.c', and the `bison hack/foo.y' filename yields `hack/foo.tab.c'. It's is also possible, in case you are writing C++ code instead of C in your grammar file, to name it `foo.ypp' or `foo.y++'. Then, the output files will take an extention like the given one as input (repectively `foo.tab.cpp' and `foo.tab.c++'). This feature takes effect with all options that manipulate filenames like `-o' or `-d'. For example : bison -d INFILE.YXX will produce `infile.tab.cxx' and `infile.tab.hxx'. and bison -d INFILE.Y -o OUTPUT.C++ will produce `output.c++' and `outfile.h++'.
