Ambiguity Detection in Context-free Grammars

We can now effectively detect and report ambiguity in many grammars for real-life programming languages, such as Java, C and Cobol. This is due to the algorithmic innovations by Bas Basten [17] , [16] , [15] , [14] .

The next step is to scale ambiguity detection to so-called scannerless parsers. Scannerless parsers are used to parse programming languages with complex lexical syntax (often seen in legacy languages).
