Basically, it's a BNF (Backus-Naur form) on the left-hand side, with
rules added (between {}'s) on the right-hand side.  Thus if you know
BNF, it's usually simple to guess the actual grammar by just reading
the file, though modifying it will of course require a bit of
knowledge about all this.

While YACC stands for ``Yet another compiler-compiler'', it's probably
just /the/ compiler-compiler that is most widely used at all.
