Racc Tutorial

I’ve done a bit of looking at Racc, a compiler-compiler for Ruby. (It’s vaguely like Yacc, although the syntax is different.)

Unfortunately, Racc has no documentation to speak of. But someone named CMills has put together a PowerPoint introduction to writing parsers in Ruby and Racc (38k download, .tar.gz format). Sketchy but good. I didn’t understand all the slides, but it’s the best Racc documentation I’ve found so far.
