The version of the Bison manual at
is for Bison 1.35.  `%parse-param' isn't listed in the
index.  Nor is it listed in the index of the manual for
Bison 1.75, which is installed on one of the machines I'm using.  When I
get a chance, I'll download a distribution and try to generate the
up-to-date manual.

Thanks for the suggestion, but I would rather not
redeclare `yyparse()' everytime I want to add a
local variable.  Nor do I want to change all the calls to
`yyparse()' in my code each time I do this, either.
Therefore I don't see any advantage to doing this over
my workaround.

I think allowing users to declare local automatic variables in
`yyparse()' would be helpful to me and other users who call
`yyparse()' in multiple threads.
If the Bison developers and maintainers don't agree,
I can work around it.
