Specifying the mapping between concrete and abstract syntax

Eli deduces the correspondence between the concrete and abstract syntaxes based on the user specifications in .con, .lido and .map files.


Typical Error Situation

Often caused by typing mistakes:

.map: MAPSYM a_or_b : a b.

.con: x : a b.

.lido: RULE: x ::= a_or_b ',' a_or_b END;

This .lido rule does not match a concrete grammar rule. It is added to the parsing grammar.

==> a_or_b is considered to be a terminal.

==> ERROR: No GLA specification for a_or_b
