Hi everyone,

Can someone clarify to me why y.tab.c is included within the bash source
tree if it is generated from parse.y?

Not all platforms have up to date tools for generating y.tab.c from parse.y.

Seeing that it appears likely we're going to encounter more parser bugs
which need patching, I suspect one of two approaches should be taken:

1) Remove y.tab.c from the original tarball, and ensure the clean method
within Makefile removes it

The VMS build procedure currently needs the y.tab.c file, as the tools to build it on VMS are not current.
