Wow, that must be long ago.

Not that I understand anything of this or compiler internals, I have
read that yacc is table driven, and such tools are normally better at
error reporting. Coco/R uses recursive descent <something or other>
which is apparently better at performance and speed output.

No idea what all this means though, but I'll read more to try and find out. :)
