This means we can store a unique error message rather than just an error code. This will make our error reporting better and more flexible, and we can get rid of the original error enum . Our updated lval struct looks like this. typedef struct lval { int type; long num; /* Error and Symbol types have some string data */ char* err; char* sym; /* Count and Pointer to a list of "lval*" */ int count; struct lval** cell; } lval; Are there ever pointers to pointers to pointers? There is an old programming joke which says you can rate C programmers by how many stars are on their pointers.

This means we can say "a program is an operator followed by one or more expressions," where "an expression is either a number, or, in parenthesis, an operator followed by one or more expressions". More formally... Program Expression Operator Number the start of input, an Operator , one or more Expression , and the end of input. either a '+' , '-' Number , an optional '*' - or '(' , an , or '/' . Operator , one or more Expression , and one or more characters between 0 , and an and ')' . 9 Regular Expressions We should be able to encode most of the above rules using things we know already, but Number and Program might pose some trouble.

The first argument to mpca_lang are the options flags. For this we just use the defaults. The second is a long multi-line string in C. This is the grammar specification.

The special symbols used to define the rules on the right hand side work as follows. "ab" The string 'a' The character 'a' 'b' First 'a' | 'b' Either 'a'* Zero or more 'a' are required.
