Eddie, HTC,

BNF has a much wider, fascinating, usage in the history of modern logic, and, computer science: [^]
Quote:
The origin of BNF is not as important as its impact on programming language development. During the period immediately following the publication of the ALGOL 60 report BNF was the basis of many compiler-compiler systems. Some directly used BNF like "A Syntax Directed Compiler for ALGOL 60" developed by Edgar T. Irons and "A Compiler Building System" Developed by Brooker and Morris. Others changed it to a programming language. The Schorre Metacompilers made it a programming language with only a few changes. <class name=""> became symbol identifiers dropping the enclosing <,> and using quoted strings for symbols of the target language. Arithmetic like grouping provided simplification that removed using classes where grouping was its only value. The META II arithmetic expression rule shows grouping use. Output expressions placed in a META II rule are used to output code and labels in an assembly language. Rules in META II are equivalent to a class definitions in BNF. The Unix utility yacc is based on BNF with code production similar to META II. yacc is most commonly used as a parser generator, and its roots are obviously BNF. BNF today is one of the oldest computer-related languages still in use.
The way Panini nailed it some 2500+ years ago [^] fascinates me ... if i had another life, I'd study Sanskrit grammar.
