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.

Another grammar for the same inherently ambiguous language, using EBNF style.

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), p. 49 (2e).

    "Grammar for an inherently ambiguous language"

    The language consists of all sequences a^m + b^n + c^n
    unioned with a^p + b^p + c^q.

    { Revisions:
    2018-08-10 : CMSMcQ : made first transcription.

    S: A, B; D, C.
    A: "a"+.
    B: "b", "c"; "b", B, "c".
    D: "a", "b"; "a", D, "b".
    C: "c"+.

    { This is a recasting of grammar 59 in idiomatic EBNF.
    Grune and Jacobs repeat this grammar (p. 171) and use it
    as an example when discussing general parsing methods.
