( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

Thank you for this great tutorial. This was a very helpful introduction.

I tried to play a bit with your example. In the following code I do not get the Error "Bad Expression" for my second expression although it is not valid.

use strict; use warnings; use Parse::RecDescent (); my $grammar = <<'__END_OF_GRAMMAR__'; { use strict; use warnings; } { sub eval_sum { my $acc = shift(@_); while (@_) { my $op = shift(@_); if ($op eq '+') { $acc += shift(@_); } elsif ($op eq '-') { $acc -= shift(@_); } } return $acc; } } sum : NUM sum_ { eval_sum( ($item[1], @{$item[2]}) ) } sum_: /[+-]/ NUM sum_ { $return = [$item[1], $item[2], @{$item[3]}] +} | { $return = [] } NUM : /\d+/ { $return = $item[1] } __END_OF_GRAMMAR__ my $parser = Parse::RecDescent->new($grammar) or die("Bad grammar\n"); foreach my $expr ('4-5+6-2','4*5') { my $sum = $parser->sum($expr) or die "Bad expression"; print "$sum" . "\n"; }

Why do I not get the "Bad expression" error for my second expression?

Thank you

Dirk
