Re: bison-2.3, fresh download from gnu.org mirror.


The example calc++ obscures the procedure for making it because the
distribution includes and uses the bison and flex outputs rather than
generating them from the input files.

It is so because, for instance, it is not required from the
user to have flex installed.  It is true that the bison's
output files could not be shipped.

It would be much more helpful if it built from scratch, so that us normal users could see the commands that are used to make it on our configuration. As it is, I had to guess (often wrong) about what was the original input
and what was generated.

Please have a look at examples/calc++/Makefile.am, it should
contain what you are looking for.  Unless you mean that the
doc should contain just a plain sequence of program calls?
