I've given up on LALR parsing for now because my tables are off - for some grammars - and i can't figure out why.
So instead what I'm doing is improving my LL(1) parser with automatic grammar refactoring so you can use grammars that are not intrinsically LL(1) - LL(1) being very limiting in terms of expressive power.
And this is part of the process. The full process is explained here at the link below, fortunately I got accustomed to understanding heavy Indian accents and Indian-English vernacular while at Microsoft. =)
... who posts those dumb questions. I was watching the film "Jason Bourne" last night (yes, I know). At the beginning was the usual scene, a darkened room with a few people controlling the world from their laptops. As their fingers were playing over the keys I heard someone say "Use SQL to corrupt their database(s)".
Having performed my time writing SQL, yes I can see that. The best way to do this is to have inexperienced people try to "improve" the SQL code for you... that will irreparably booger up a database faster then you can say STOP! NO DON'T!

Yeh, the silliest thing of all is the uber-elaborate GUIs that are always in movies, at least the high budget ones, when there's any sort of science involved. When, in actual fact, it's probably more likely to be black and white text output on a terminal window or something.
Though, speaking of which, have you guys seen the ad for the upcoming new Windows terminal program? It's sort of doing a double reverse spin on what I was saying above.
Time for wine (& not the alcoholic kind) I need to fill in my time sheet and it won't let me. The level of security is mad, you think I was doing some top secret military research! the major issue is the stupidity of the password system it has to be changed every month. We are not allowed to use password keepers so I was told of the Last Pass system as it is not banned (yet!) and seems to work, anyone use it? any views?
Fat chance that would work where I am - I just counted over 49 individual logins which share or have different passwords.
I use Keeper, whenever I have had any issues I have found the people at Keeper to be quick in getting back to me to help.
