A commonly used but unofficial term for 5.* versions of Perl.
A modified version of byacc that generates a parser in Perl code, by Rick Ohnemus . It has a “-p” switch so multiple parsers can be used in one program (C or Perl). Version 1.8.2 should work on most Unix systems. It also works with SAS/C 6.x on Amiga. (1993-01-24)
