       ml-burg - a tree parser generator for Standard ML


       ml-burg file.burg


       This  manual page documents briefly the ml-burg command.  This manual page was written for
       the Debian distribution because the original program does not have a manual page.

       The ml-burg program generates a Standard ML program to perform bottom-up rewriting  of  an
       input  tree.  Cost  information  associated  with  each rewrite rule is used to derive the
       minimum rewrite cost for the entire tree. A successful reduction corresponds to  rewriting
       the  input  tree  to  a  special  non-terminal symbol called the start non-terminal.  Upon
       successful reduction, facilities are provided to walk the tree emitting  semantic  actions
       corresponding to the rules that matched.

       When ml-burg is presented with file.burg, the file file.sml is generated.


       sml(1), ml-lex(1), ml-yacc(1), ml-makedepend(1), ml-build(1).
       The  programs  are documented fully by The ML-Burg -- Documentation, Florent Guillaume and
       Lal George, which is available in /usr/share/doc/smlnj-doc/ml-burg_manual.pdf.gz.
