comp.lang.c FAQ list · Question 18.15

Q: Where can I get a BNF or YACC grammar for C?

A: The definitive grammar is of course the one in the ANSI standard; see question 11.2. Another grammar by Jim Roskind is available at in home/scs/roskind_grammar.Z. A fleshed-out, working instance of the ANSI C90 grammar (due to Jeff Lee) is on (see question 18.16) in usenet/net.sources/ansi.c.grammar.Z (including a companion lexer). [footnote] The FSF's GNU C compiler contains a grammar, as does the appendix to K&R2.

The comp.compilers archives contain more information about grammars; see question 18.3.
