Bovine parser development

The bovine parser is the original Semantic parser, and is an implementation of an LL parser. It is good for simple languages. It has many conveniences making grammar writing easy. The conveniences make it less powerful than a Bison-like LALR parser. For more information, see (wisent)Wisent Parser Development.

Bovine LL grammars are stored in files with a .by extension. When compiled, the contents is converted into a file of the form NAME-by.el. This, in turn is byte compiled. See (grammar-fw)Grammar Framework Manual.
