1 COP 3402 Systems Software Top Down Parsing (Recursive Descent) Top Down Parsing 1

2 Outline 1. Top down parsing and LL(k) parsing 2. Recursive descent parsing 3. Example of recursive descent parsing of arithmetic expression a) based on predictive parsing table b) based on syntax graph 4. Extended Backus-Naur form 5. Syntax graph 6. A LL(1) grammar for PL/0 in extended Backus-Naur form Top Down Parsing 2

3 Top-Down Parsing A top-down parser is a parser that build the parse tree by starting at the root and working down the parse tree. Syntax Analysis 3

4 LL Parsing LL parsing is a top-down parser that parses input Left to right performing Leftmost derivations. Syntax Analysis 4

5 LL(k) Parsing An LL parser is called an LL(k) parser if it uses k tokens of look-ahead to choose the correct productions when parsing sentences (without ever having to backtrack). If such a parser exists for a certain grammar, then this grammar is called an LL(k) grammar. We will construct a LL(1) parser for parsing PL/0 programs. Syntax Analysis 5

6 Recursive Descent Parsing Recursive Descent Parsing uses recursive functions to model the parse tree to be constructed. The parse tree is built from the top down, trying to construct a left-most derivation. For each non-terminal symbol of the grammar (syntactic class), we have to implement a function that parses it. Top Down Parsing 6

7 Recursive Descent Parsing We want to implement a recursive descent parser for the following LL(1) grammar for arithmetic expressions: E -> T E E -> + T E ε T -> F T T -> * F T ε F -> ( E ) id num Top Down Parsing 7

8 Predictive Parsing Table S -> E \$ E -> T E E -> + T E ε T -> F T T -> * F T ε F -> ( E ) id num We will cover later how to construct the predictive parsing table. The column for num is omitted because it is the same as for id + * id ( ) \$ S S -> E \$ S -> E \$ E E -> T E E -> T E E E -> + T E E -> ε E -> ε T T -> F T T -> F T T T -> ε T -> * F T T -> ε T -> ε F F -> id F -> ( E ) 8

9 Predictive Parsing Table The corresponding code is in the file predictive-table-parser.c in the folder 2_parser/b_simple_parser 9

10 Extended Backus-Naur Form E -> T E E -> T E E -> + T E ε E -> { + T } T -> F T T -> F T T -> * F T ε T -> { * F } F -> ( E ) id num F -> ( E ) id num Note that { and } are not terminal symbols of the grammar. They are symbols of the EBNF used to indicate that something can occur an arbitrary number of times (0, 1, 2, ). Note that we could eliminate E and T as follows: E -> T { + T } T -> F { * F } Top Down Parsing 10

11 Extended Backus-Naur Form E -> T E E -> { + T } T -> F T T -> { * F } F -> ( E ) id num The code based on the above EBNF specification is shown in pseudo code on the following slide. An implementation in C is in the file in the folder syntax-graph-parser.c 2_parser/b_simple_parser 11

12 Recursive Descent Parsing procedure E begin call T call E end { E } procedure E begin { E } while token = + begin { WHILE } Get next token call T end { WHILE } end { E } procedure T begin { T } call F call T end { T } procedure T begin { T } while token = * begin { WHILE } Get next token call F end { IF } end { T } procedure F begin { F } case token is ( : Get next token call E if token = ) then begin { IF } Get next token end { IF } else call ERROR id : Get next token num : Get next token otherwise: call ERROR end { F } Top Down Parsing 12

13 Syntax Graph It is advantageous to transform a grammar expressed in EBNF into a syntax graph. This helps visualize the parsing process of a sentence because the syntax graph reflects the flow of control of the parser. Rules to construct a syntax graph: R1.- Alternation A 1 A 2 A n is represented by the following syntax graph: A 1 A 2 A n Top Down Parsing 13

14 Syntax Graph Rules to construct a syntax graph: R2.- Every occurrence of a terminal symbol T means that a token has been recognized and a new symbol (token) must be read. This is represented by a label T enclosed in a circle. T R3.- Every occurrence of a non-terminal symbol N corresponds to an activation of the recognizer N. N R4.- Concatenation C 1 C 2 C m is represented by the graph: C 1 C 2 C m where every C i is obtained by applying construction rules R1 through R6. Top Down Parsing 14

15 Syntax Graph Rules to construct a syntax graph: R5.- { Q } is represented by the graph: where Q is obtained by applying constructing rules R1 through R6 R6.- [ R ] is represented by the graph: Q where R is obtained by applying rules R1 through R6 R Top Down Parsing 15

16 Syntax Graph Example due Nikolas Wirth: A ::= x ( B ) B ::= A C C ::= { + A } A ( B ) x B A C C A + Top Down Parsing 16

17 Syntax Graph ( A ) A + x This is the final syntax graph. Top Down Parsing 17

18 Extended BNF Grammar for PL/0 <program> ::= <block>. <block> ::= <const-declaration> <var-declaration> <proc-declaration> <statement> <const-declaration> ::= [ const <ident> = <number> {, <ident> = <number>} ; ] <var-declaration> ::= [ var <ident> {, < ident> } ; ] <proc-declaration> ::= { procedure <ident> ; <block> ; } <statement > ::= [ <ident> := <expression> call <ident> begin <statement> { ; <statement> } end if <condition> then statement while <condition> do <statement> ] <condition> ::= odd <expression> <expression> <rel-op> <expression> <rel-op> ::= = <> < <= > >= Top Down Parsing 18

19 Extended BNF Grammar for PL/0 <expression> ::= [ + - ] <term> { ( + - ) <term> } <term> ::= <factor> { ( * / ) <factor>} <factor> ::= <ident> <number> ( <expression> ) Note that <ident> and <number> should be considered as terminal symbols of the grammar/tokens for the parser. <number> ::= <digit> { <digit> } <ident> ::= <letter> { <letter> <digit> } <digit> ::= <letter> ::= a b y z A" B Y Z Top Down Parsing 19

20 Error Messages for PL/0 Parser Error messages for the PL/0 Parser: 1. Use = instead of :=. 2. = must be followed by a number. 3. Identifier must be followed by =. 4. const, var, procedure must be followed by identifier. 5. Semicolon or comma missing. 6. Incorrect symbol after procedure declaration. 7. Statement expected. 8. Incorrect symbol after statement part in block. 9. Period expected. 10. Semicolon between statements missing. 11. Undeclared identifier. 12. Assignment to constant or procedure is not allowed. 13. Assignment operator expected. 14. call must be followed by an identifier. 15. Call of a constant or variable is meaningless. 16. then expected. 17. Semicolon or end expected. 18. do expected. 19. Incorrect symbol following statement. 20. Relational operator expected. 21. Expression must not contain a procedure identifier. 22. Right parenthesis missing. 23. The preceding factor cannot begin with this symbol. 24. An expression cannot begin with this symbol. 25. This number is too large. Top Down Parsing 20
