Grammars 41-60.

Tests compiled manually in 2018 and 2019, re-packaged and extended (supplying test cases where needed) in 2022.

Note that some tests have alternate results for processors operating in non-standard modes, in particular modes in which they tolerate multiple definitions and undefined nonterminals or in which they do not tolerate non-productive nonterminals or unreachable nonterminals.

For a description of the form in which alternate results are recorded, see tests/misc-grammar/test-catalog.xml.

A grammar with undefined, unproductive, and unreachable nonterminals.

Alternate expected results are given for processors running with an option to tolerate multiple definitions and undefined symbols.

Invisible XML Grammar

{ Sample grammar adapted from Dick Grune and Ceriel J. H. Jacobs,
    Parsing techniques: A practical guide (New York: Ellis Horwood, 1990;
    second edition New York:  Springer, 2008), pp. 109 (1e) and 142 (2e).

    This is an augmented form of the regular grammar in 55, intended to
    illustrate the existence of undefined, unproductive, and unreachable
    non-terminals in regular grammars.
