The set of files that you sent in
do not contain a test.alg file.  So I can't reproduce your problem.
You can find a copy of your submission here:


Please send a single, self-contained test case, including the source
code, a makefile to build the program, test data, and instructions
about how to run the program to use the test data, showing why an
older Bison works but Bison 2.0a doesn't.  Please don't send .o files
or executables; just source code and a simple way to reproduce the
problem.  Also, please don't ask me to stich together parts of
previous bug reports, as I probably will make mistakes in doing so.
Just send a self-contained test case.

Sorry, I don't know what the "EOF problem" is.

Sorry, I don't know what this is either.

Not necessarily.  It could, for example, be a bug elsewhere, that
is triggered by substituting one version of Bison for another.
Until we know what the problem actually is, we don't know whether
it's a bug in Bison or in some other part of your system.
