Tokens to Syntax Tree — Syntax Analysis

  • 4770 Accesses

Abstract

There are two ways of doing parsing: top-down and bottom-up. For top-down parsers, one has the choice of writing them by hand or having them generated automatically, but bottom-up parsers can only be generated. In all three cases, the syntax structure to be recognized is specified using a context-free grammar; grammars were discussed in Section 1.8. Sections 3.2 and 3.5.10 detail considerations concerning error detection and error recovery in syntax analysis.
