Re: [cdt-dev] How to extend the C99 / GCC LR Parser

Hi Sebastian,
You need an additional parser extension, you can ask for it via bugzilla. Please add a specification of the extension, ideally you can point to a document in the Web.
We have added support for similar custom extensions in the past, see ICParserExtensionConfiguration.

Hi Markus,

first thanks for your proposal. Your are right, I also have the feeling that in my case this would be much easier, even if I also would like to understand the parsers a bit better.

In implementation I simply added macros to replace the new keywords by an empty space. This worked so far and was not perfect but acceptable. My problem is the following extension to the variable definitions, which is used for register defintions in the microcontroller and sometimes for variables :

volatile short int PORT_A @ 0x0100;

While it is simple to replace fixed keywords I didn't know how to manage the @ and the memory address after the definition. Do you have any idea how I could solve this?

best regards

>Hello all,
>I am working on a parser for a C based language which contains some small extensions, e.g. special type qualifiers. Therefore I would like to extend the C99 or GCC LR Parser.

Do I have to do modifications on the preprocessor and do I do that? I think keywords can be added using the ScannerExtensionConfiguration, but I don't know how to do this correctly. Do I also need to do adaptations to the AST?
>It would be great if one of you could give me a short overview in which modules I need to do modifications, so that I understand the behavior better.
