This grammar is incomplete. For example it cannot handle string literals in multiple quotes, like this: "multiple""quote""string""literal""

This version seems much better:

Hi, I am developing a project and all version of C Sintaxis hane given me error at time I tried to compile. Do you have some recomendations to get done the compiling thing? I am using Flex and Bison.

Hi, how to use this code in ubuntu? It didn't work with the usual lex filename.l, yacc -d filename.y, gcc yy.lex.c yy.tab.h -ll
When I do ./a.out and type some C syntax, it does nothing
So how exactly to use this grammar. Thanks in advance!

@Renu1996
You should look inside the lex/flex specification file. For example purposes, lets say you set eyes on this line:
"&" { count(); return('&'); }
You see the count() function is called for every match that lex/flex executes, so if you want lex/flex to "talk" back to you, you should go inside count() definition and right before the closing bracket write printf("Found something: %s\n", yytext);.

@jesshack10
Compile it using gcc command, not g++ or any C++ specific command. Can you be more specific about the errors that you receive?

Doesn't this have multiple reduce/reduce conflicts? For instance, there are several rules that expand to IDENTIFIER, which nothing before or after it. I'm trying to adapt this to the "ply" python-lex-yacc module and it complains.
