Please make sure to report version of software in bug reports. The

version bison-1.875d you get there is an old one.


What happens if you follow the instructions for the latest Bison

release,made latest Monday?:


Bison test version 2.0a is now available.  It contains mostly bug

fixes for Bison 2.0.  Our intention is to generate a new official

release soon, based on feedback from this test version.


Here is the URL:




Here is the MD5 checksum:

To try this test version, please make sure you have GNU m4 1.4.3

<ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/m4/m4-1.4.3.tar.gz> installed, and then execute

the following shell commands or their equivalents:


    wget ftp://alpha.gnu.org/gnu/bison/bison-2.0a.tar.gz

    gunzip <bison-2.0a.tar.gz | tar xf -

    cd bison-2.0a

We particularly appreciate tests on unusual hosts.
