I guess that if there is, as Akim says, a dedicated effort for the C-
parser to compile under C++ in current and upcoming Bison versions,
there suffices there to be a note of it somewhere that this is the
case. It does not need to elaborate, but only so that one can say in
Help-Bison and other places, yes, you may go ahead compile the parser
using a C++ compiler.

I do not see what you have in your mind here.
I said that I recall you use(d), under C, memcpy to reallocate the
parser stack. Now, when one is using C++, the definition of POD types
is such that this also works. Thus, one can use POD types safely as
parser semantic type. If one uses a non-POD type this will not work,
because for example the user defined assignment operator will not be
properly invoked by memcpy alone. If one wants to extend the C++
stacks working with non-POD types as well, say by invoking the
assignment operators explicitly, then this can be tried using
#defines __cplusplus, but this is not needed using POD types alone.
