4 Contextfree grammars start nonterminal nonterminal S E $ E T E E + T T id T ( E ) terminal production / rule 4
5 Contextfree languages Sentential forms Derivations (leftmost, rightmost) Language = all derivable words Derivation tree (also called parse tree) Language = all yields of derivation trees Ambiguous grammars 5
6 Agenda Understand role of syntax analysis Parsing strategies LL parsing Building a predictor table via FIRST/FOLLOW/NULLABLE sets Handling conflicts 6
7 Role of syntax analysis Highlevel Language Lexical Analysis Syntax Analysis Parsing AST Symbol Table etc. Inter. Rep. (IR) Code Generation Executable Code (scheme) Recover structure from stream of tokens Parse tree / abstract syntax tree Error reporting (recovery) Other possible tasks Syntax directed translation (one pass compilers) Create symbol table Create prettyprinted version of the program, e.g., Auto Formatting function in IDE 7
8 From tokens to abstract syntax trees program text 59 + (1257 * xposition) Lexical Analyzer Regular expressions Finite automata Lexical error valid token stream num + ( num * id ) Grammar: E id E num E E + E E E * E E ( E ) syntax error + Parser valid Contextfree grammars Pushdown automata Abstract Syntax Tree num * num x 8
9 Marking endoffile Sometimes it will be useful to transform a grammar G with start nonterminal S into a grammar G with a new start nonterminal S and a new production rule S S $ $ is not part of the set of tokens It is a special EndOfFile (EOF) token To parse α with G we change it into α $ Simplifies parsing grammars with null productions Also simplifies parsing LR grammars Blank space character 9
10 Another convention We will assume that all productions have been consecutively numbered (1) S E $ (2) E T (3) E E + T (4) T id (5) T ( E ) 10
11 Parsing strategies 11
12 Broad kinds of parsers Parsers for arbitrary grammars CockeYoungerKasami [ 65] method O(n 3 ) Earley s method (implemented by NLTK) O(n 3 ) but lower for restricted classes Not commonly used by compilers Parsers for restricted classes of grammars TopDown Predictive LL parsing Backtracking recursive descent / combinators BottomUp LR parsing 12
13 Topdown parsing Constructs parse tree in a topdown matter Find leftmost derivation Predictive: for every nonterminal and ktokens predict the next production LL(k) Challenge: beginning with the start symbol, try to guess the productions to apply to end up at the user's program By Fidelio (Own work) [GFDL ( or CCBYSA ( via Wikimedia Commons 13
14 Predictive parsing 14
15 Exercise: show leftmost derivation How did we decide which production of E to take? E not E not ( E OP E ) not ( not E OP E ) not ( not LIT OP E ) not ( not true OP E ) not ( not true or E ) not ( not true or LIT ) not ( not true or false ) (1) E LIT (2) (E OP E) (3) not E (4) LIT true (5) false (6) OP and (7) or (8) xor not E E ( E OP E ) not E or LIT LIT false true 15
16 Predictive parsing Given a grammar G attempt to derive a word ω Idea Scan input from left to right Apply production to leftmost nonterminal Pick production rule based on next (1) input token Problem: there is more than one production based for next token Solution: restrict grammars to LL(1) Parser correctly predicts which production to apply If grammar is not in LL(1) the parser construction algorithm will detect it 16
17 nonterminal LL(1) parsing via pushdown automata Input stream a + b $ Stack of symbols (current sentential form) X Y Z $ Parsing program token Derivation tree / error Prediction table production 17
18 LL(1) parsing algorithm Initialze stack to S $ while true Prediction When top of stack is nonterminal N 1. Pop N 2. lookup Table[N,t] 3. If table[n,t] is not empty, push Table[N,t] on stack else return syntax error Match When top of stack is terminal t If t=next input token, pop t and increment input index else return syntax error End When stack is empty If input is empty return success else return syntax error 18
19 Nonterminals Example prediction table (1) E LIT (2) E ( E OP E ) (3) E not E (4) LIT true (5) LIT false (6) OP and (7) OP or (8) OP xor Input tokens Table entries determine which production to take ( ) not true false and or xor $ E LIT 4 5 OP

21 Illegal input example abcbb$ S asb c Input suffix Stack content Move abcbb$ S$ predict(s,a) = S asb abcbb$ asb$ match(a,a) bcbb$ Sb$ predict(s,b) = ERROR a b c S S asb S c 21
22 Building the prediction table Let G be a grammar Compute FIRST/NULLABLE/FOLLOW Check for conflicts No conflicts => G is an LL(1) grammar Conflicts exit => G is not an LL(1) grammar Attempt to transform G into an equivalent LL(1) grammar G 22
23 First sets 23
24 FIRST sets Definition: For a nonterminal A, FIRST(A) is the set of terminals that can start in a sentence derived from A Formally: FIRST(A) = {t A * t ω} Definition: For a sentential form α, FIRST(α) is the set of terminals that can start in a sentence derived from α Formally: FIRST(α) = {t α * t ω} 24
25 FIRST sets example E LIT (E OP E) not E LIT true false OP and or xor FIRST(E) =? FIRST(LIT) =? FIRST(OP) =? 25
26 FIRST sets example E LIT (E OP E) not E LIT true false OP and or xor FIRST(E) = FIRST(LIT) FIRST(( E OP E )) FIRST(not E) FIRST(LIT) = { true, false } FIRST(OP) = {and, or, xor} A set of recursive equations How do we solve them? 26
27 Computing FIRST sets Assume no null productions (A ) 1. Initially, for all nonterminals A, set FIRST(A) = { t A t ω for some ω } 2. Repeat the following until no changes occur: for each nonterminal A for each production A α 1 α k FIRST(A) := FIRST(α 1 ) FIRST(α k ) This is known as a fixedpoint algorithm We will see such iterative methods later in the course and learn to reason about them 27
28 Exercise: compute FIRST FIRST(STMT) = FIRST(if EXPR then STMT) FIRST(while EXPR do STMT) FIRST(EXPR) FIRST(EXPR) = FIRST(TERM > id) FIRST(zero? TERM) FIRST(not EXPR) FIRST(++ id) FIRST( id) FIRST(TERM) = FIRST(id) FIRST(constant) STMT if EXPR then STMT while EXPR do STMT EXPR ; EXPR TERM > id zero? TERM not EXPR ++ id  id TERM id constant STMT EXPR TERM 28
29 Exercise: compute FIRST FIRST(STMT) = {if, while} FIRST(EXPR) FIRST(EXPR) = {zero?, not, ++, } FIRST(TERM) FIRST(TERM) = {id, constant} STMT if EXPR then STMT while EXPR do STMT EXPR ; EXPR TERM > id zero? TERM not EXPR ++ id  id TERM id constant STMT EXPR TERM 29
30 1. Initialization FIRST(STMT) = {if, while} FIRST(EXPR) FIRST(EXPR) = {zero?, not, ++, } FIRST(TERM) FIRST(TERM) = {id, constant} STMT if EXPR then STMT while EXPR do STMT EXPR ; EXPR TERM > id zero? TERM not EXPR ++ id  id TERM id constant STMT if while EXPR zero? Not TERM id constant 30
31 2. Iterate 1 FIRST(STMT) = {if, while} FIRST(EXPR) FIRST(EXPR) = {zero?, not, ++, } FIRST(TERM) FIRST(TERM) = {id, constant} STMT if EXPR then STMT while EXPR do STMT EXPR ; EXPR TERM > id zero? TERM not EXPR ++ id  id TERM id constant STMT if while zero? Not EXPR zero? Not TERM id constant 31
32 2. Iterate 2 FIRST(STMT) = {if, while} FIRST(EXPR) FIRST(EXPR) = {zero?, not, ++, } FIRST(TERM) FIRST(TERM) = {id, constant} STMT if EXPR then STMT while EXPR do STMT EXPR ; EXPR TERM > id zero? TERM not EXPR ++ id  id TERM id constant STMT if while zero? Not EXPR zero? Not id constant TERM id constant 32
33 2. Iterate 3 fixedpoint FIRST(STMT) = {if, while} FIRST(EXPR) FIRST(EXPR) = {zero?, not, ++, } FIRST(TERM) FIRST(TERM) = {id, constant} STMT if EXPR then STMT while EXPR do STMT EXPR ; EXPR TERM > id zero? TERM not EXPR ++ id  id TERM id constant STMT if while zero? Not EXPR zero? Not id constant TERM id constant id constant 33
34 Reasoning about the algorithm Assume no null productions (A ) 1. Initially, for all nonterminals A, set FIRST(A) = { t A t ω for some ω } 2. Iterate to fixpoint: for each nonterminal A for each production A α 1 α k FIRST(A) := FIRST(α 1 ) FIRST(α k ) Is the algorithm correct? Does it terminate? (complexity) 34
35 Reasoning about the algorithm Termination: Correctness: 35
36 LL(1) Parsing of grammars without epsilon productions 36
37 Using FIRST sets Assume G has no epsilon productions and for every nonterminal X and every pair of productions X and X we have that FIRST( ) FIRST( ) = {} No intersection between FIRST sets => can always pick a single rule 37
38 Using FIRST sets In our Boolean expressions example FIRST( LIT ) = { true, false } FIRST( ( E OP E ) ) = { ( } FIRST( not E ) = { not } If the FIRST sets intersect, may need longer lookahead LL(k) = class of grammars in which production rule can be determined using a lookahead of k tokens LL(1) is an important and useful class 38
39 Exercise: LL(1) prediction table Terminals: id. num $ (1) S E $ (2) E A B (3) E B (4) A id B (5) B. id A (6) B num FIRST(S) = FIRST(E) = FIRST(A) = FIRST(B) = S E A B id. num $ 39
40 Extending LL(1) Parsing for epsilon productions 40
41 FIRST, FOLLOW, NULLABLE sets For each nonterminal X FIRST(X) = set of terminals that can start in a sentence derived from X FIRST(X) = {t X * t ω} NULLABLE(X) if X * FOLLOW(X) = set of terminals that can follow X in some derivation FOLLOW(X) = {t S * X t } 41
42 Computing the NULLABLE set Lemma: NULLABLE( 1 k ) = NULLABLE( 1 ) NULLABLE( k ) If X 1 k then we have the following equation: NULLABLE(X) = NULLABLE( 1 ) NULLABLE( k ) 1. Initially NULLABLE(X) = false 2. Iterate to fixpoint: for each production Y 1 k if NULLABLE( 1 k ) then NULLABLE(Y) = true 42
43 Exercise: compute NULLABLE S A a b A a B A B C C b NULLABLE(S) = NULLABLE(A) NULLABLE(a) NULLABLE(b) NULLABLE(A) = NULLABLE(a) NULLABLE( ) NULLABLE(B) = NULLABLE(A) NULLABLE(B) NULLABLE(C) NULLABLE(C) = NULLABLE(b) NULLABLE( ) 43
44 FIRST with epsilon productions How do we compute FIRST( 1 k ) when epsilon productions are allowed? FIRST( 1 k ) =? 44
45 FIRST with epsilon productions How do we compute FIRST( 1 k ) when epsilon productions are allowed? FIRST( 1 k ) = if not NULLABLE( 1 ) then FIRST( 1 ) else FIRST( 1 ) FIRST ( 2 k ) 45
46 Exercise: compute FIRST S A c b A a NULLABLE(S) = NULLABLE(A) NULLABLE(c) NULLABLE(b) NULLABLE(A) = NULLABLE(a) NULLABLE( ) FIRST(S) = FIRST(A) FIRST(cb) FIRST(A) = FIRST(a) FIRST ( ) FIRST(S) = FIRST(A) {c} FIRST(A) = {a} S A c b A a What should we predict for input acb? What should we predict for input cb? 46
47 FOLLOW sets FOLLOW(X) = set of terminals that can follow X in some derivation FOLLOW(X) = {t S * X t } 47
48 FOLLOW sets if X α Y then FOLLOW(Y)? if NULLABLE( ) or = then FOLLOW(Y)? p
49 FOLLOW sets if X α Y then FOLLOW(Y) FIRST( ) if NULLABLE( ) or = then FOLLOW(Y)? p
50 FOLLOW sets if X α Y then FOLLOW(Y) FIRST( ) if NULLABLE( ) or = then FOLLOW(Y) FOLLOW(X) p
51 FOLLOW sets if X α Y then FOLLOW(Y) FIRST( ) if NULLABLE( ) (or = ) then FOLLOW(Y) FOLLOW(X) Allows predicting nullable productions: X α where NULLABLE(α) when the lookahead token is in FOLLOW(X) p. 189 S A c b A a c What should we predict for input cb? What should we predict for input acb? 51
52 Filling the prediction table Table[N, t] = N α if 1. t FIRST(α) or 2. NULLABLE(α) and t FOLLOW(N) 52
53 LL(1) conflicts 53
54 Conflicts FIRSTFIRST conflict X α and X and If FIRST(α) FIRST(β) {} FIRSTFOLLOW conflict X α NULLABLE(α) If FIRST(α) FOLLOW(X) {} 54
55 LL(1) grammars A grammar is in the class LL(1) when its LL(1) prediction table contains no conflicts A language is said to be LL(1) when it has an LL(1) grammar 55
56 LL(k) grammars 56
57 LL(k) grammars Generalizes LL(1) for k lookahead tokens Need to generalize FIRST and FOLLOW for k lookahead tokens 57
58 Agenda Understand role of syntax analysis Parsing strategies LL parsing Building a predictor table via FIRST/FOLLOW/NULLABLE sets Handling conflicts 58
59 Handling conflicts 59
60 Problem 1: FIRSTFIRST conflict term ID indexed_elem indexed_elem ID [ expr ] FIRST(indexed_elem) = { ID } How can we transform the grammar into an equivalent grammar that does not have this conflict? 60
61 Solution: left factoring Rewrite the grammar to be in LL(1) term ID indexed_elem indexed_elem ID [ expr ] New grammar is more complex has epsilon production term ID after_id After_ID [ expr ] Intuition: just like factoring in algebra: x*y + x*z into x*(y+z) 61
62 Exercise: apply left factoring S if E then S else S if E then S T 62
63 Exercise: apply left factoring S if E then S else S if E then S T S if E then S S T S else S 63
64 Problem 2: FIRSTFOLLOW conflict S A a b A a FIRST(S) = { a } FOLLOW(S) = { } FIRST(A) = { a } FOLLOW(A) = { a } How can we transform the grammar into an equivalent grammar that does not have this conflict? 64
65 Solution: substitution S A a b A a Substitute A in S S a a b a b 65
66 Solution: substitution S A a b A a Substitute A in S S a a b a b Left factoring S a after_a after_a a b b 66
67 Problem 3: FIRSTFIRST conflict E E  term term Left recursion cannot be handled with a bounded lookahead How can we transform the grammar into an equivalent grammar that does not have this conflict? 67
68 Solution: left recursion removal p. 130 N Nα β N βn N αn G 1 G 2 L(G 1 ) = β, βα, βαα, βααα, L(G 2 ) = same For our 3 rd example: Can be done algorithmically. Problem 1: grammar becomes mangled beyond recognition Problem 2: grammar may not be LL(1) E E  term term E term TE term TE  term TE 68
69 Recap Given a grammar Compute for each nonterminal NULLABLE FIRST using NULLABLE FOLLOW using FIRST and NULLABLE Compute FIRST for each sentential form appearing on righthand side of a production Check for conflicts If exist, attempt to remove conflicts by rewriting grammar 69
