10.1.3 C++ Location Values

When the directive %locations is used, the C++ parser supports location tracking, see Tracking Locations.

By default, two auxiliary classes define a position, a single point in a file, and a location, a range composed of a pair of positions (possibly spanning several files). But if the %define variable api.location.type is defined, then these classes will not be generated, and the user defined type will be used.

In this section uint is an abbreviation for unsigned int: in genuine code only the latter is used.
